Global Goals

 

The Global goals are a set of 17 commitments made in 2015 by 193 world leaders, to end extreme poverty, inequality and climate change by 2030. 

 

Seven years on, we have made progress, but there is still work to be done, and the Goals are more important than ever. The climate crisis. Ensuring no one goes hungry. Human rights abuses. Extreme poverty. Problems of this scale can be overwhelming, but the Global Goals(also known as the Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs) are the solution to tackling them.

 

And who better to understand the reasons that we need to change than tomorrow's leaders, citizens and our future - the children that we are teaching today.  The children at Newbold Church School.  That is the reason why we decided to base our curriculum around the Global Goals: so that our learning had a purpose, and so our children can use their learning to help create a better world for us all in generations to come. 

 

All our topics are based in one of the Global Goals.  The children have an age appropriate understanding of why they are learning the skills and knowledge that their teachers are covering, and how that skills and knowledge will better equip them to make a change. 

 

The Global Goals are ambitious, but with great ambition we can achieve great things!  If we all take an active part in championing at least one Goal, our society will be better for all of us. What will your contribution be?
