World Leaders have committed to 17 Global Goals to achieve 3 extraordinary things in the next 15 years:
The 17 Global Goals
If every school in the world teaches children about these goals, educators will help them become the generation that will change the world.
Goal 4 : Education
Education:The goal 4 is Education. Our most important goal as educators.
This Goal aims to ensure that by 2030 all girls and boys around the world can complete free primary and secondary education.
You could show in the classroom the film clip below from UNICEF to start off a lesson on the topic of 4th goal, education:
In the clip, children from all around the world tell us what education means to them - what does it mean to the children in your class?
It also includes targets supporting: the provision of pre-school education; equal access to tertiary and vocational education; enhanced vocational, technical, numeracy and literacy skills among young people and adults; reduced gender disparity in education provision; enhanced provision for vulnerable people and those with disabilities; and the recruitment of more teachers, especially in less developed.

- Subjects & ideas:
Here are some teaching ideas for exploring the Goal 4 through different subjects:
You can download a toolkit for children and young people who want to make sure their voice is heard in a post-2015 world.
The toolkit will help them develop the advocacy and campaign actions that they themselves want to take.
It’s one great big opportunity to foster global citizenship in your school, support students learning across a range of subject areas such as languages, science, geography, maths, citizenship and technology and develop big ideas including human rights, poverty, and environmental issues.
Students love to participate in great human causes. I remember the Earth Day first time they had the opportunity to join the Global Campaign for Education, Peace Day, We can end Poverty, Zero Discrimination.
Schools and teachers have a great role inspiring children and young adults know what they can do to get involved and become true global citizens!
The Global Goals and some of their themes can select and shape lessons that are relevant for the children that you teach.
Of course, you can share stories, photos and videos of your lessons directly The World Largest Lesson website or on twitter or facebook
