How are we becoming Global Citizens at Nansen Primary School?
As part of our journey to becoming Gold: Rights Respecting, it is extremely important that our students see themselves as rights respecting global citizens and are advocates for social justice, fairness and children’s rights at home and abroad.
At Nansen Primary School, we are working hard to ensure that all children are aware of the sustainable development goals and are working towards making the world a better place.
So, what is Sustainable Development?
Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the future. This means improving our quality of life without damaging the quality of life of future generations.
What are the Global Goals?
In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 goals for a better world by 2030. These goals have the power to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change. Guided by the goals, it is now up to all of us, governments, businesses, civil society and the general public to work together to build a better future for everyone.
How do these goals link to our UNICEF Gold Award?
As we are now working towards our GOLD award, part of the criteria is that students see themselves as rights respecting global citizens and are advocates for social justice, fairness and children’s rights at home and abroad. We as a school are going to use the Global Goals to support us in our rights respecting journey.
What are we going to do as a school?
As a school, we are going to use the Global Goals to support and contribute towards improving our world. Each year group will be assigned a specific goal, and will produce/create or take part in something that shows that they have actively contributed towards achieving sustainable development. This will be decided by the year group, and will take place throughout the year. In July 2019, we will showcase our efforts as a school.
What impact will this have on our students?
By taking part in this exciting project and becoming global citizens, this will help our pupils to build their own understanding of world events and think about their values and what is important to them. Not only does it allow children to take learning into the real world, but it also provides them with opportunities to get involved in their local, national and global communities. It also shows children that they have a voice and that they have the power to make a positive difference.
