High School Learning Material On Global Development

High School Learning Material On Global Development

Dalberg Media produced and published an online learning material for high school students on the biggest Danish online learning platform owned by the Danish publisher; Gyldendal. Samme-nOmVerden (Danish title) explains global development issues in the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals. Building on the notion that the younger generations hold the potential to ensure sustainable development, SammenOmVerden aims at strengthening high school students’ digital, innovative, and global competencies alongside inspiring them to take action for realizing the SDGs. It gives a toolbox for co-creating innovative solutions to development challenges as well as negotiation games, where each student takes on the role of a development stakeholder to investigate a devel-opment paradox, contributing in raising students’ global and sustainable consciousness to ultimately enable them to become thought leaders and pioneers of social impact.

The material is freely accessible on Gyldendal's Social Science platform. Gyldendal's educational plat-forms are used by up to one third of all Danish pupils and outreach is thus expected to be significant. The material has been distributed via a range of partners and networks including The World's Best News/ Verdenstimen.dk, the Danish Development Agency's U-web.dk and via partners such as the Danish high school network, Global High Schools, and the Association for Teachers in Social Science.
