Project Everyone, a global campaign to inform and engage the public about the new United Nations development agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), launched its key activity ‘the World’s Largest Lesson’. This universal lesson to promote the global goals can be used by schools across the world. You can find an English project pack here, while lesson plans in multiple languages can be found here.
Since the launch of Project Everyone, over 100 ministers of education have accepted the invitation to engage in it by mobilising their school systems to participate in the “World’s Largest Lesson”. For more information, see the article on the UNESCO website.
