How to empower your students to take action and help achieve the SDGs

Youth-led social action has the power to change our communities and the world. As educators, we also know that high quality youth-led social action also has the power to change the young people taking that action. When young people are given the opportunity then it can be an incredible vehicle for developing their confidence, leadership, and a whole host of valuable skills such as research, planning and collaboration.

Taking place in Global Goals Week, this webinar will explore how schools can empower their students to take real world action and help achieve the SDGs.

You will hear directly from young people that have created projects as part of the COBIS Global Social Leaders Leadership Weekend, and are following their passions to address local, national, and global issues related to the Global Goals.

The session will cover:
• How to empower students to take real world action and help achieve the SDGs
• What students gain from taking social action
• Next steps and upcoming opportunities

The webinar will be hosted by Jakub Goscinny from Global Social Leaders, and include students from the following COBIS schools:
• St Catherine's British School, Greece
• Jumeirah College, UAE
• Aloha College
• British School of St Petersburg
