The World's Largest Lesson

The World's largest lesson is a UNESCO/UNICEF Initiative linked to the global goals of sustainable development.

One of the essential aims of the world's largest lesson is to raise awareness and teach young people, especially young children, the content of the global sustainable development goals  called (SDGs). The SDGs are part of the new post-2015 development agenda on the theme:  "Transforming Our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development", which is being adopted by the United Nations in order to:

-  make an end  to poverty;

- fight against inequalities;

- fight against climate change.

 inderstanding  the challenges of sustainable development will enable students to appropriate the world in which they live.

 Young people must be aware of these objectives so that they can contribute to their achievement.

 The field of education is concerned with Objective 4 "ensuring quality education for all".

According to the 2030 Agenda, children and young people are essential agents of change and will find in these new goals the aspiration that will allow them to put their infinite capacity for action in the service of creating a better world.

Associated schools are invited to participate through awareness campaigns, awareness raising and actions to achieve the sustainable development Goals.

Students are encouraged to research projects in which they could participate in order to achieve national targets for achieving the global goals.

These activities can help students develop their creativity or their communication and collaboration skills.
