About this class

In our fourth event One Global Body, The Global Classroom focused in-depth on the importance of physical and mental wellbeing. In our following event – Global Generations – The Global Classroom celebrated generational changes and discovered how the world has changed over the years. Global Generations delved into ways in which different generations can influence and help one another.

During the Global Generations event, we spoke with a variety of guest speakers. Our guest panel shone a light on the topic of generational change. We believe that Global Generations was the perfect way to celebrate World Children’s Day 2020. There is no better way to highlight the value that each generation holds and possesses than open discussion and the sharing of experiences.

Our Global Generations event, hosted by Scarisbrick Hall School, showcased how each generation passes their wisdom and knowledge onto the next. During the Global Generations live broadcast we were joined by Michael Woodside from Walt Disney Animation Studios, and Michaela Pavlat, a Cultural Interpreter at the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian, who will discussed her American Indian heritage, and how the generations of her culture who have come before her have been key to her life.

Our live broadcast reached and connected over 150,000 children across 198 countries. During Global Generations, children also heard from a wealth of additional accomplished speakers. It was our pleasure to welcome Megan Collins M.D., a Paediatric Ophthalmologist, Christopher McDougall, an American Author, and Tiassa Mutunkei, a National Geographic Young Explorer.

All of our speakers joined us to speak about the impact that different generations in their lives have had on them. We also heard how our guests are working to influence the young generations of today. We were lucky enough to be joined by Hannah Ingram-Moore from The Captain Tom Foundation. Global Generations also featured a message from Captain Sir Tom Moore to our global students.

Global Generations highlighted the importance for generations to interact with one another, and the impact that can happen when different generations share their stories and experiences. The full recording of Global Generations is available above, or over on our YouTube channel. Keep an eye on Our Classes to find and experience our upcoming digital classrooms.
