In 2019 the World’s Largest Lesson helped to bring the SDGs to over 1.2 million Nigerians.
We ran a week long, country-wide youth activation led by over 4000 youth volunteers where children took part in a lesson that invited them to think about the future that they want for Nigeria and resulted in them making an ‘ask’ to the Ministry of Education for the inclusion of the SDGs in the national curriculum.
This was followed up with a subsequent activation, reaching communities and families across Nigeria who took the Goals to their hearts and made strong connections between the global SDGs framework and what they observe in their own communities.
Club17 Africa – our SDGs after-school clubs, were also launched, giving young people an opportunity to explore the Goals in more detail – beginning a journey as Global Goals champions and changemakers. To see more about Club17 Africa, check out our campaigns page!
