In collaboration with UNICEF, BSB students have their social consciousness raised so they care more deeply about the world and the people in it. Your child will research, develop and debate challenges facing our society, and take action to address them. Through special activities and events with UNICEF, your child will be equipped to make their voice heard on the world stage and to make a lasting, positive difference.
Annual Global Challenge
Together with UNICEF, all BSB students are challenged to participate in projects on the Sustainable Development Goals in their schools.
The Sustainable Development Goals are a collection of 17 goals set by the United Nations regarding social and economic development issues that we hope to collectively achieve by 2030.
Every year, UNICEF challenges students at Nord Anglia Education schools to raise awareness of these goals through creative projects and activities. Whether it’s a recycling project for sustainability, turning plants into bio-fuels, fighting against poverty in their community, or other meaningful activities based on the 17 goals, our students are challenged to lead change.
Sharing Ideas on the World Stage
BSB students are encouraged to express their concerns at the highest level in their local communities and on the global stage. Each year, they are invited by UNICEF to engage with and influence world leaders at regional and global summits with UNICEF and the United Nations.
This includes an annual trip for student ambassadors to join seminars, workshops and speaking opportunities at the High Level political Forum at the Headquarters of the United Nations in New York. This is a unique opportunity for our students to contribute to the discussion and influence policy at the highest level.
Our students also take part in high profile activities related to each annual World Children’s Day. This is a day for children, by children!
Working with UNICEF
UNICEF is the world’s leading advocate for children. They operate in 190 countries to save children’s lives, defend their rights and help them fulfil their potential. UNICEF is empowered by the United Nations to take collective action for a better world.
Our teachers benefit with resources from the World’s Largest Lesson, which is how UNICEF introduces the Sustainable Development Goals in schools through lesson plans, videos and creative content.
