About this class
Having already focused on the Global Mind, and streamed live on World Environment Day 2020, our fourth class of The Global Classroom focused on health and wellbeing. Our last event – One Global Body – aimed to address health and wellness issues, whilst drawing attention to the importance of looking after your physical and mental health. The ultimate aim was to unite everyone and unify global thought, to strengthen wellbeing around the world. On 22nd September 2020 we connected with children and relevant spokespeople from around the globe to give a better understanding of how to live a healthy lifestyle.
Led by Scarisbrick Hall School, One Global Body brought attention to the importance of physical and mental wellbeing. Throughout this live broadcast, which you can catch up on above, we tuned in with National Geographic live explorer, Kartik Sawhney, Ben Lesser, Holocaust Survivor, and other influential figures from around the world, to highlight the importance of how to protect yourselves and techniques to stay safe and healthy.
This live broadcast event, which reached and connected children across 198 countries, featured an array of fantastic spokespeople. Joined by New York Times bestselling journalist James Nestor, alongside Logan Schmidt, Science Curriculum Developer. Both guests shined light on different issues, whilst offering their own, individual united thoughts on physical and mental wellbeing.
We also had great pleasure welcoming Dr Panagis Galiatsatos, MD and Assistant Professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, who has significant experience in the field of health and wellness. Having published in excess of 40 research articles on health equity and health outcomes, Dr Panagis Galiatsatos shared his inspirational thoughts with us live.
