Promoting Global Awareness Through World’s Largest Lesson, Global Goals and More

“The first step toward change is awareness. The second step is acceptance.” By Nathaniel Branden


The Global Goals site is a great resource to help add global awareness into your classroom. One way to start is on September 25th, 2015 for the World Largest Lesson, where 193 world leaders will commit to the Global Goals for Sustainable Development. There ate 17 goals to achieve 3 extraordinary things in the next 15 years such as end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice or fix climate change. If every school in the world teaches children about these goals, we will help them become the generation that changed the world. Allowing students to choice which goal they are most passionate about is a great way to add personalization.

The World’s Largest Lesson has a teacher guide, lesson ideas (for all different age levels) and info on the goals. Here are three quick ideas from their site that you can do with your class to be apart of the movement.

  1. Take a Global Selfie with a message or do a class selfie with a goal
  2. Take the Dizzy Goals
  3. Record We the People Video

Other great sites to add to your resource kit for brining global awareness into your classroom.
