Description

“The Our World Awards seek to enable pupils to learn about the lives of children and their families in developing countries and how Ireland, through Irish Aid, and 192 other countries in the United Nations are working together to create a safer and fairer world, and a better future for all the world’s children. Pupils as global citizens can play their part by taking part in the Awards and engaging with these issues.”

The 2018 theme relates to many of the global goals, with particular relevance to the transformative power of education.

By participating in the Awards, pupils will explore the links between their lives and the lives of people in developing countries, and learn how both rich and poor countries are working together to create a better world and a better future through the Global Goals.

The Awards will also help pupils to consider what they, as children in Ireland, can do for people and planet.
