This lesson programme was intially Launched in September 2015 and lessons have taken place in 160 countries.

UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake said that:

- It will engage them in the effort to achieve those goals– educating them about the challenges.
- Shaping child’s futures and encouraging them to drive change in their own communities.
- Young people can help achieve the global goals by holding their leaders accountable for the promises they are making – and by holding themselves accountable for building a better future for everyone.
