Speaking on Friday to a global audience of IB teachers and school leaders, Mr Siamak Sam Loni, the Global Coordinator of SDSN Youth, shared the results of #generationIB - an online campaign to showcase IB students’ solutions to humanity’s greatest challenges - and announced the launch of Global Schools, saying “IB teachers and schools are in an incredibly powerful and unique position to deliver on SDGs --- you can use education as a weapon to change the world....together, let’s build a movement for the sustainable development from your classrooms, our planet needs it.”

Schools are the core foundations of our society. They are the epicenters for future generation to learn, nurture knowledge and have the power and unique responsibility to provide the knowledge and necessary skills for the next generation to tackle the biggest challenges of their time.

Centralizing curriculums, lesson plans, videos, and educational activities, the Global Schools website provides schools and educators with resources they need to get started with teaching the Sustainable Development Goals and implementing them within their schools.  

As a practical framework, the SDGs give educators the apparatus necessary to introduce complex local and global issues with specific targets to solve them, while empowering students and encouraging them to prioritize the goals in their lifestyles, behaviors, education and professional careers.

To help them in their crucial mission, Global Schools have developed a series of tools, free and available to all, including lesson plans for grades 1-12, a library of fun resources and a pledge for schools to join the SDG movement.
