“On 21 May at the Houses of Parliament Westminster, six young people representing projects from across the country, used their voice to tell a packed audience how global learning has been important for them, and to call on our government to work towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Think Global were delighted to support and participate in this inspiring event Chaired by Jess McQuail, Think Global CEO. Focusing on sustainable development goal 4.7, it celebrated the valuable impact that global learning has, particularly on youth leadership and student voice. It was fantastic to have the meeting opened with addresses from Stephen Twigg MP (for Liverpool and Derby and Chair of the APPG on Global Education) and Harriet Baldwin MP (Minister of State for International Development and Minister of State for Africa at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office). With young leaders from projects including, Think Global’s ‘Start the Change!’ programme, Oxfam’s Erasmus+ School Forums, Connecting Classrooms from the British Council, Send My Friend to School, International Citizens Service and the Global Learning Programme – the event show-cased a breadth of expertise in global learning to be proud of! …”
