16TH – 26TH SEPTEMBER 2022
To celebrate Global Goals Week and the launch of the evolved GSL Global Goals Competition as part of the GSL Membership, we are hosting a series of live webinars from the 16th – 26th September focused on the Goals and featuring students and teachers from the GSL movement.
Join us to be inspired by youth projects taking action to help address the SDGs across the world!
The interactive webinars will focus on four Global Goals that we have found to be most appealing to young people. Students will share how they are helping to address each of these SDGs through a presentation on their social action projects, and teachers will provide insight into how they have leveraged GSL to support their students to take action on the Goals. We want to further equip young people to become leaders on these themes, take high-quality action, and be recognised for their contribution. The SDGs are:
- SDG 3: Good Health and Wellbeing
- SDG 4: Quality Education
- SDG 13: Climate Action
- SDG 17: Partnerships for the Goals
At the end of each session, there will be an opportunity for a Q&A and the GSL team will provide information on how schools, teachers and students can join the GSL movement.
The schedule is as follows:
- FRIDAY 16 SEPTEMBER | 17.00-18.00 (BST) | SDG 4: Quality Education | CMath (Communauté Mathématique), International School of Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso
- TUESDAY 20 SEPTEMBER | 17.00-18.00 (BST) | A teachers perspective: Inspiring students to take action on the SDGs | Project Gharana, Jayshree Periwal International School, India
