The ONE Campus Challenge is a college competition designed to mobilize students, faculty and alumni in the fight against extreme poverty and preventable disease.
Fall campaign kick-off: World’s Largest Lesson
Three years ago this September, world leaders gathered at the United Nations and agreed to 17 ambitious goals for a better and more just world by 2030. The Global Goals have the power to end poverty, fight inequality and stop injustice. Guided by the goals, it is now up to everyone: governments, businesses, civil society and the general public to work together to build a better future for everyone.
In order to achieve the goals, it’s imperative that people know what they are — that’s why ONE has partnered with World’s Largest Lesson. ONE (including ONE Campus!) will be introducing the goals to community groups, classrooms and students. For the next month and a half, ONE Campus chapters will be teaching a lesson on one of three goals: good health and well-being (Goal 3); quality education (Goal 4), or gender equality (Goal 5).
ONE Campus members and their chapters will be organizing events leading up to and on World Teacher’s Day (October 5) to make sure that everyone on their campus knows about the Global Goals. What’s even more exciting is that ONE members from Canada, Nigeria, the United Kingdom, Netherlands, Germany and Belgium will be teaching a lesson as well. This is truly a global effort.
The Global Goals will go as far as ONE members and activist will take them, so don’t forget to stay tuned this World Teacher’s Day on October 5 for the #WorldsLargestLesson.
