World's Largest Lesson is not just about sitting in a classroom and learning something, it's about using the real world around you to create a bridge between traditional learning and active based learning; encouraging children to take action, self reflect and change their lifestyle.

About the innovation

What is World's Largest Lesson?

World’s Largest Lesson brings the Global Goals to children all over the world, reaching over 70 countries and millions of children since its launch in September 2015.

We produce free and creative resources for educators to teach lessons, run projects and stimulate action in support of the Goals. At the heart of our resources sit animated films written by Sir Ken Robinson, animated by Aardman and introduced by figures students know and respect, like Emma Watson, Serena Williams, Malala Yousafzai, Kolo Touré, Neymar Jr, Hrithik Roshan and Nancy Ajram. These films establish a context for the Goals and inspire students to use their creative powers to support and take action for them.

We operate under a non-commercial creative commons licence and encourage you to share it widely.

Produced by Project Everyone and delivered in partnership with UNICEF and many NGOs, private sector organisations and foundations, the World’s Largest Lesson reaches students through multiple channels. Ministries of Education are invited annually to take part. NGOs distribute digital content through their networks and education organisations, both for and non-profit, encourage participation through their communities.

Impact & scalability

Impact & Scalability

It’s rare for educators right across the world to have access to creative resources produced by Oscar winners and artists and that's what WLL is doing with their films and comics. It’s scalable because it’s easy! By opening the door to the SDG's and providing engaging resources, this will inspire schools to take on action projects on their own.

HundrED Academy Reviews

Excellent! A webpage with free diverse learning resources linked to the SDG. It´s such a great idea! It is in several languages- I had never heard of it before!

Brilliant! Resources I have used many times. It encourages students to see themselves as change makers in their world and develop agency to make the world a better place by engaging with the Global Goals. Scalability: Anyone can use these resources with their students.
