We are aware that due to school closures you may not be able to make the progress you would have liked with your projects. This is entirely understandable and under the circumstances we expect most Global Goals teams will be affected in some way.
We want you to know that we value your health above all else. We ask that you follow the advice of the WHO and local authorities and do not put yourselves or others at risk. Please seek official advice before going ahead with planned events or team meetings relating to your project.
If you are able, we strongly encourage you to continue your efforts in whatever way you can. If you cannot make progress at this time then rather than withdraw from the competition we suggest you place your project in ‘hibernation’ for the time being. Either way you should submit a final report by 1st May 2020, regardless of the stage your project has reached. This is the only way your team members will receive recognition for the efforts you have made this year and a named certificate.
Please note that we do not expect your social action to have concluded by the point of final submission and will be asking our judges to take into consideration these extraordinary mitigating circumstances. This programme is as much about your personal development and learning journey as it is the impact your social action delivers and we want to celebrate each and every one of you for the incredible work you have done in this competition!
