The ‘World’s Largest Lesson’ is an initiative to help the UN achieve their 17 global goals for sustainable development by 2030! It’s about telling the world about the goals so that we can all use our creativity and super powers to work together and all be part of the solution.
We are reading the comics, learning about the goals ourselves and have made posters of each goal, in English and Chinese, to hang in our classroom. We have done it so that whatever project we work on in the future, we can talk about which goal we are actually working towards, to make our world a better place! Our first project we will work on will be the Solar Buddy Project. We hope it will inspire conversation about the goals to the visitors of our classroom!
For advanced students in Mandarin, you can use the World’s Largest Lesson Mandarin website, Mandarin Sustainable Goal website , and read the ‘Superhero Comic’ in both Mandarin and English. Here is the video to introduce the goals in Mandarin:
And the video in English:
We watched some cool videos amongst the resources that shared what some children are doing around the world to help achieve these goals, to inspire us to use our creativity to do the same. We already have many ideas in the pipeline! But we went to the beach for a play after watching these videos, and my little girl decided to write a message using sand, that was read by lots of other children and parents. We also made a little joke, what else is there only one of? ‘n’ in ‘planet’ 🙂
