"Be the Change"

This is a self-paced course (all lessons are pre-recorded) so you can start whenever you want and do it at your own pace.

About the Course

This course is heavily aligned with all SDG’s

Starting on 19th July 2022, this 10-week course will see students working collaboratively to create change within their local communities, with an aim to complete 170 actions that are in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The students will use purpose-based educational activities to create and evaluate change within their community and beyond. All students will be invited to attend the global World Children’s Day Upschool Conference on November 20th, 2022.

This course is differentiated and open to adults, children, teachers and parents.

It will culminate on November 20, 2022 – which is World Children’s Day. To celebrate this momentous occasion, children all around the world will be invited to spend their day listening to 17 keynote presentations delivered by 17 groups of amazing children from around the world, who have proved that change starts with us and that little actions within our local community can have a big impact globally.

How will the course work?

The course will last around 10 weeks and the mission is to convince your community that small changes can have a huge impact!

Connection: Students will first discover their place in the world and understand the interconnection and impact of all actions we take.

Creating Change: The children will collaborate to persuade the community to change the way they live to make the world a better place for everyone.

Speak Out: Once the students have begun to see the impact of their work, they will collate their ideas and reflections and present these to the rest of the world to read!

Global Conference: Children all around the world will be invited to spend their day listening to 17 keynote presentations delivered by 17 groups of amazing children from around the world (as judged by our selection panel), who have proven that change starts with us and that little actions within our local community can have a big impact globally.

The “Dear World” Book Will be Published: We are going to collate the words of students across the globe to produce Volume 1 of our Coffee Table Book “Dear World… The Voice of Our Generation”. Every person who submits a message will be published in this book. Meaning every voice is heard and every voice counts.

?

It’s 100% free – yes. Nothing to pay to be involved.

We have 5 year old children right through to adults participating. It’s differentiated and open to everyone. 

Either. Whole school engagement is the best way to have maximum impact, but it certainly can be done by one class or by one year level. You can even use it as an extension program for a small number of students too if that works for you.

No, not at all. Individuals (adults and children) can go through the course.
