In this talk during Education on Air Richard Curtis describes an upcoming opportunity for teachers and students to be involved in the World’s Largest Lesson in September. This effort from Project Everyone seeks to raise awareness about the issues covered in the United Nations new Sustainable Development Goals. To take part learn more on the World’s Largest Lesson website. (www.globalgoals.org/worldslargestlesson)
Richard is the writer of hit films “Four Weddings & A Funeral,” “Love Actually,” “Mr Bean” & “Bridget Jones Diary.” He co-founded Comic Relief (http://www.comicrelief.com/), a non-profit that aims to see a world free of poverty. He is also a great advocate for getting students and communities involved in global issues like poverty, climate change and justice.
On September 25th 2015 the United Nations will announce The Global Goals for Sustainable Development, a set of goals for the world that aim to make our planet fair, healthy and sustainable by 2030. Wouldn’t it be amazing if in the week of the 27th September 2015 children across the world knew about The Global Goals and began to contribute to their achievement in whatever way they could?
