Why a Global Goals Centre?
Global Goals Centre Ltd is working with partners across the city region to create an interactive, inspirational Education and Visitor Centre focused on the Global Goals (the UN Sustainable Development Goals). Our aim is to increase understanding of global poverty, inequality and climate change, and inspire transformational change for a sustainable and more equal future, locally and globally.
How will the Centre work?
The Centre will use storytelling, films and games to enable children and other visitors to fully experience local and global scenarios, and enable them to use creativity, collaboration and critical thinking to find positive solutions to the issues they raise. It is well-documented that this immersive
‘in your shoes’ type of experience is much more likely to trigger committed behaviour change and empathy than other ways of learning.
We will also showcase many examples of developments and innovations locally and around the world that are transforming lives and environments, to provide a hopeful and positive narrative.
Throughout the visit we will highlight practical ways that individuals can take action to make a difference locally and globally, including signposting to local groups to strengthen existing community actions and local volunteering.
What does the Centre aim to achieve?
We aim to provide an immersive and memorable experience that will be a catalyst for attitude and behaviour change and prompt sustainable choices and critical thinking.
We aim to reach 12,000+ school children from across the region and beyond, and 6,000+ visitors each year.
We will provide schools with a range of teaching materials to continue Global Goals learning beyond the visit.
We aim to develop skills of local young people and community groups, and engage them in the Centre, by including them in the design and creative process.
The Centre will offer exceptional volunteering opportunities for local people, and a powerful partnership opportunity for local businesses, groups and charities.
The Centre will also act as Global Goals Hub for the city, which can be used for training, international gatherings, team building and more.
