VSO backs ‘World’s Largest Lesson’ week

Volunteer Teachers from leading international development charity, VSO, will help communicate the UN’s new Global Goals to seven billion people over seven days.

Lessons, which will promote aims such as ‘End Poverty’ and ‘Fight Inequality’, will take place in schools from Sunday 27th September following the official announcement of the new Global Goals at the UN Summit in New York on Friday 25th September. The new seventeen goals will replace the old Millennium Development Goals which expire this month.

VSO volunteers from all over the world including Britain, will be teaching ‘The World’s Largest Lesson’ in Papua New Guinea, Tanzania, Mozambique, Uganda and Malawi. The lessons will include a special animated film, devised by acclaimed British Educationalist, Sir Ken Robinson.
