Hey, thanks for stopping by the 2030 Schools site. Connect with us online using the #2030schools hashtag on Twitter and Facebook.
I’m A.J. Juliani. I currently work as an Education and Technology Innovation Specialist at the Upper Perkiomen School District in Pennsylvania. I’ve been lucky enough to have students push my thinking when I was a HS English teacher and help develop “Project: Global Inform” as a class. Since then I’ve become passionate about creating projects that have a purpose (for our students and our world).
The UN 2030 Goals are an incredible opportunity for schools, teachers, and students to get started making a difference in our world. There is no reason we need to wait until we are all “grown up” to make a change.
This site provides resources, projects, and community around the idea of “projects with purpose” in our schools.
I hope you take action in supporting the UN 2030 Goals and being the change you want to see in the world.
Feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions!
How to Get Started
The 2030Schools.com site provides a way for schools around the world to get started supporting the UN 2030 Goals through project-based learning.
The UN has already built out a wonderful site for educators looking to do a lesson on the UN 2030 Goals (check it out here at World’s Largest Lesson) – but this site will be a bit different because it focuses on PBL and global collaboration to spread awareness of the goals.
Here’s how you can Become a 2030 School:
1. Go to 2030Schools.com
2. Pledge to be a 2030 School and join the online community
3. Show your students the UN 2030 Schools Video (link here)
4. Have students break out and choose a goal that means something to them personally (what are they passionate about?)
6. Share what you’ve made, create awareness campaigns around your chosen goal, and collaborate with other students and classrooms around the world!
This is in the very beginning stages, but we are pumped.
Sixth graders in my district will be doing the mini-project this Spring and we are hoping to connect with schools from all over the world. The online community will be launching in December and we’ll have a map of all the 2030 Schools around the world!
