Introduction to the Global Challenge

01 March 2017

On September 25th 2015, 193 world leaders committed to the Global Goals for Sustainable Development (SDGs). The SDGs were created to replace the Millennium Development Goals which came to an end in September 2015.  These new goals for the world aim to make our planet fair, healthy and sustainable by 2030.

  • Global Goals for Sustainable Development 2017 Challenge at BIS HCMC

In 2017, UNICEF decided to challenge the students of Nord Anglia schools to set up a sustainable, high quality action plan and summary video for what they’re doing in their local communities to tackle Goal 2 and 3 - Zero Hunger and Good Health & Well Being. The purpose of this challenge is to engage students around the world to understand these goals and to promote sustainable change.

Between 13th-17th February we took part in Nord Anglia’s Largest Lesson to launch our Global Challenge. Lessons and ECAs contained activities linked to the Global Goals, particularly focusing on Goal 2: Zero Hunger, and Goal 3: Good Health & Wellbeing. Since then, students having been talking about and planning their individual and group action plans to submit to the BIS HCMC Sustainable Development Action Plan.

The Global Goals Club are encouraging students to ask themselves the following questions:

  1. What actions are you already taking to tackle zero hunger or good health and well-being?

  2. What needs can you identify within your local community (e.g. through clubs or personal experience)?

  3. How could you address those needs? Who would you need to talk to?

Students can set up an action plan which should include their ideas of what they’re doing, reason for the action, when does it take place (for each action) and how the plan is sustainable. Individual plans are due 28/04/17 and can be submitted to globalchallenge@bisvietnam.com

The response must:

  • Be practical and applied to our local community

  • Outline what you have committed to do to tackle either or both goals in our local community

  • Outline the progress you have made so far

The Global Goals Club will then discuss and collate all action plans into one BIS HCMC Sustainable Development Action Plan to send to UNICEF, showing how students at BIS HCMC are tackling the goals. We’re looking forward to seeing these plans in action over the next few terms!
