New home learning activities from CDEC to help young people Choose the World You Want

New home learning activities from CDEC to help young people Choose the World You Want

Jan 14, 2021

Get young people thinking about the world they would choose to live in through our series of five activities.

The first of five home learning activities has just been released by us.

Each week until February half-term, we will be releasing a new activity for young people to help them Choose the World You Want - the theme of this year's Fairtrade Fortnight.

These home learning activities will help everyone explore aspects of the Global Goals (the UN's Sustainable Development Goals) that link to fair trade. The first focuses on Global Goal 3: Good Health and Well-being.

Find the activity and other information here.

Explore the Global Goals

The SDGs or Global Goals, were developed by the UN in 2015 when over 30 countries met to work together. They came up with 17 goals to end poverty by 2030. We are looking at just five of them. You can find out more about the goals here.

A chance to be creative away from a screen

We are asking young people to create something in response through the activity or to the activity - for instance, a model in Lego or plasticine, a poem or short story, a film or photo - which individuals can then submit to us as a photo.

Be involved as much or as little as you want

Take part in as many or as few of the activities as you want, give as much time to them as you wish to, maybe link them together, or create a final response to all five activities and send them to us by email by 18 February. 

These fantastic creations will the go towards a final online exhibition during Fairtrade Fortnight (22 February to 7 March) and International Women's Day (8 March). 

See everyone else's amazing creations!

This online exhibition will conclude the five activities (though if home schooling goes on beyond half term, we might extend our weekly activities too).

It will give you, and us, a chance to share your amazing ideas with other people, build real hope and give us all ideas that we can take on to choose the world we want to live in.

CDEC working in partnership

We are delighted to be working with our partners at the Consortium of Development Education Centres (CoDEC) to create these resources and to share them far and wide.
