Participating in the Take Action Global Goals Project, 2021

Pune, Maharashtra | March 4th, 2021

The Take Action Global was founded by Koen Timmers and Jennifer Williams and endorsed by the renowned anthropologist Dr. Jane Goodall and His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama.

Take Action Global was created to inspire change by providing opportunities for students around the world to take action on social good causes through education. Building on more than 60 years of classroom experience empowering students to be curious, ask questions, take action, and make a difference in their communities, we are bringing together like-minded educators seeking a different way of teaching and learning. The team at TAG is committed to creating space for teachers and students to work at local and global levels for the betterment of humanity for today and for tomorrow.

Participating in the Take Action Global Goals Project, 2021, SBPPS

We are proud to inform that all students from grade VIII-A, B and C participated in the Take Action Global Goals Project 1: No Poverty; a part of the United Nations 17 sustainable development goals to be achieved by the year 2030. They presented virtually on the “Day of Solutions” in a day-long event held on March 4th, 2021 after a month of activities starting from January 25th, 2021, which involved students to discuss, brainstorm and express ways to achieve the 17 SDG’s.

The students were guided by TGT Social Science Ms. Anjali Gugale. The Goals Project Facilitator was Ms. Donna Guerin, the UN SDG’s ambassador and a K-12 Classroom teacher for SDG 1: No Poverty; and Jennifer Williams, Co-founder of Take Action Global.

The month long journey of activities and virtual tours and discussions of student activism worldwide and of the United Nations was very motivating for the students. We feel proud that our students are well aware of the 17 sustainable goals which the world aims to achieve by 2030. As a part of the NEP and the school CBSE curriculum it is necessary that children should be made aware of the UN 17 SDG’s to make a difference and bring about the necessary change and progress in our society when they grow up.

Students from Std. VIII-A, B and C made drawings, wrote blogs, created online posters, discussed and made videos that were shared as a resource for schools across the globe on Padlet (Ms. Jennifer’s Padlet Account), Flipgrid , Twitter, Facebook and Youtube (on teacher facilitator Anjali Gugale’s account.)
