World's Largest Lesson Plan

Elementary, Middle

Description

The video, aimed at school-aged children, presents the 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development in an easy to understand and engaging format.  In this six-minute video, introduced by Malala, students are introduced to the three main issues that as a global society, we need to address: social inequalities, extreme poverty and disrespect for the planet. The video presents an optimistic point of view as it introduces the students to the 17 global goals for sustainable development created by the United Nations. It encourages the students to take action to help the world achieve the goals by asking the question, "What else do you think we can do?"

General Assessment

Recommendation of how and where to use it

This video would be an excellent introduction for student-led initiatives towards publicizing and working towards attaining the 17 global goals for sustainable development. Some ideas include:

  • Students could create their publicity campaign for their school via videos to be shared at a school assembly or poster campaigns in order to build an awareness of the goals.
  • They could hold a water walk to bring an awareness to the plight of people who do not have access to clean drinking water.
  • They could hold food drives in order to help with hunger and malnutrition.
