SHINE a Light on UN Youth and Global Citizenship Foundation
October 7, 2021
Hosted by Orb
Being able to learn and grow from what we have gone through during Covid-19 is a great tool to have under our belts. There are technological and personal achievements that have emerged from the pandemic. How might we reform global learning so that it supports the local good and the global good in our world? Planet Classroom in association with Creative Visions have invited youth globally to shine a light on their thoughts, feelings, hopes and desires for the world. In this new episode of the SHINE series, Orb, Planet Classroom’s virtual host, asked eight young leaders to tell us what they hope to see in a world once covid-19 diminishes. As members of the UN Youth and Global Citizenship Foundation, they have taken their own tools to teach us how we can create a more sustainable world.
