Even with the unprecedented challenges created by COVID-19, it’s important that children understand how they can have a positive impact in the world and to talk with them about what they can do to help protect and shape the planet’s future.

The Sustainable Development Goals – also known simply as the Global Goals – provide a blueprint for reimagining how our world could look in a post-pandemic world. But with so many children learning at home, World’s Largest Lesson and UNICEF created a “World’s Largest Lesson Live,” which premiered on 16 June.

Hosted by Savannah Sellers, NBC News and MSNBC correspondent and host of NBC’s Stay Tuned, the conversations explored the themes of education, health, and the future. Joining the lesson were UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta Fore, UN Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed, UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Millie Bobby Brown, Sofia Carson, WHO Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, and others.
