World’s Largest Lesson
World’s Largest Lesson brings the Global Goals to children all over the world and unites them in taking action. Since our launch in September 2015, they have reached over 130 countries and impacted over 8 million children each year.
They produce free and creative resources for educators to teach lessons, run projects and stimulate action in support of the Goals. At the heart of their resources sit animated films written by Sir Ken Robinson, animated by Aardman and introduced by figures students know and respect, like Emma Watson, Serena Williams, Malala Yousafzai, Kolo Touré, Neymar Jr, Hrithik Roshan and Nancy Ajram. These films establish a context for the Goals and inspire students to use their creative powers to support and take action for them.
Produced by Project Everyone and delivered in partnership with UNICEF and many NGOs, private sector organisations and foundations, the World’s Largest Lesson reaches students through multiple channels. Ministries of Education are invited annually to take part. NGOs distribute digital content through their networks and education organisations, both for and non-profit, encourage participation through their communities.
