global citizenship day
As part of our work as a Rights Respecting School we hold a number of Global Citizenship days throughout the course of the year to raise awareness and teach children about global issues. In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 Global Goals (officially known as the Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs). These goals have the power to create a better world by 2030, by ending poverty, fighting inequality and addressing the urgency of climate change. Guided by the goals, it is now up to all of us, governments, businesses, civil society and the general public to work together to build a better future for everyone. The theme for the Global Citizenship Day on Thursday 4th June will be linked to Global Goal 13 Climate Action. Here is the link to the Global Goals website. https://globalgoals.org
Article 24: Children have the right to good quality health care, clean water, nutritious food and a clean environment so that they will stay healthy. Richer countries should help poorer countries achieve this.
