Why we’re working together
Nord Anglia Education and UNICEF work in partnership to support UNICEF in further developing freely accessible learning materials on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), while helping Nord Anglia students gain the knowledge and skills required to make positive change within their communities.
What we’re doing
The partnership builds on Nord Anglia’s work to date embedding the SDGs and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) in all aspects of teaching and learning across its schools.
The partnership’s global programme includes:
- Tackling Global Sustainability Challenges through local action– encouraging students to deepen their knowledge about the SDGs and tasking them to think creatively and take action to positively impact their communities and the world around them.
- Bringing young voices and views to the UN High Level Political Forum. Nord Anglia students will participate in a wide array of events during this important global leadership meeting, reporting on what Governments and young people are doing to take action on the SDGs and sharing their ideas with key policymakers from around the world.
- Engaging young people in Student Leadership courses – helping students to learn project management and develop good leadership and global citizenship skills.
What we aim to achieve:

donated to support UNICEF’s work in education and emergencies
As educators we have an important responsibility to make sure the next generation are empowered to create a more equitable future for all. As our global partnership with UNICEF shows, we believe in giving young people an education that broadens their understanding of how they can impact important issues including sustainability and equality which equips them with the confidence, collaborative mind-set and leadership skills to make a positive change in their communities and the world at large.
