DEAR WORLD LEADERS...
If you could speak directly to the leaders of our world and tell them about the global issues that matter most to you, what would you say?
Watch this video to see what other young people around the world think.
"World leaders have committed to more than a basic education for every child. But a commitment only counts if a commitment is kept," said Malala Fund co-founder and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai. "We are going continue this fight to ensure that 12 years of quality, free primary and secondary education is ensured to every child -- and that all the global goals become a reality for every child, rather than a dream."
THE GIRL WHO SILENCED THE WORLD
23 year ago a 12 year old girl gave a speech to the United Nations. She wanted to tell world leaders what she thought.
Watch her speech and think about:
1. The message(s) she is conveying
2. Whether or not you agree with her
3. To what extent is her speech still relevant today?
ON FRIDAY YOU WILL TAKE PART IN A WHOLE SCHOOL VOTE. YOU WILL VOTE FOR 5 GOALS MATTER MOST TO YOU.
