”On September 25th 2015, 193 world leaders will commit to the Global Goals for Sustainable Development. 17 goals to achieve 3 extraordinary things in the next 15 years.
- End extreme poverty.
- Fight inequality and injustice.
- Fix climate change.
If every school in the world teaches children about these goals, we will help them become the generation that changed the world.”
[Read article and find links to lesson plans, etc, here.]
In addition to having our leaders commit to these Global Goals, why don’t we use this opportunity to become involved in the campaign.

With Peace Day coming up on 21 September, I’m challenging teachers and volunteers alike to join me in sharing these lesson plans that can encourage our children to bring about a better future for themselves by teaching them that they can be ”Superheroes for Change”.
I’ll be sharing two of these lesson plans via email with the 31 facilities (daycare centers, schools, orphanages, community centers) that my foundation supports and all I ask of you is to do the same for those types of care and educational facilities in your own area. Share it, join them in presentations, whatever you want, but let the change begin with you. If you feel you want to read more about the different lesson plans you can use, click here, and choose one that you feel passionate about. The point is to get the community involved and teach the children that they do have the power to change the world.
The lessons I’ve selected:
- Design for Change – One Idea: One Week – The following is a ONE WEEK lesson plan to enable you to bring Design For Change into your classroom. The DFC 4 step FEEL, IMAGINE, DO and SHARE process is broken up here into 7 sessions, of 45 minutes each. [Click here or on the image below for the full lesson plan.]
- Heroes for Change – Explore the Global Goals as part of the World’s Largest Lesson. A 6 page comic encouraging children and young people to get involved with the Global Goals and become Heroes for Change in their communities.[You can read the comic book: ”Heroes for Change”, as well as the ”Educator’s Guide” for this lesson here or click on the image below.]
Remember, you can choose both or one of the above or visit the Global Goals-website for alternative lessons and/or to formally register and join the campaign. You will also find more information about the goals itself, its themes and ways that you can get involved to bring about change. Click here.
