One Global Mind: In the press
Following our third session of The Global Classroom, One Global Mind, we appeared on numerous Lancashire news sites, papers and even appeared on BBC Radio Lancashire and national television! We hit the headlines for launching the world’s BIGGEST LESSON and can’t wait to welcome more and more children to our following events. Read on to find out more about The Global Classroom and our success with One Global Mind.
One Global Mind
Our One Global Mind event was a fantastic event, full of inspirational talks, interviews and even a spot of singing! As we saw over 500,000 school children from around the world tune into this live digital classroom, we focussed on mental health, wellbeing and shined a light on how crucial it is to look after yourself in today’s current climate.
As 2020 has brought its challenges for all, The Global Classroom is in partnership with the World Health Organisation, aiming to connect children from across the world and unify a voice during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are also joined by UNICEF, National Geographic, Smithsonian, BMG Production Music, and Penguin Books. Being joined by these fantastic charities and organisations allows us to gain outstanding spokespeople, making The Global Classroom an event that everyone is to remember.
What was One Global Mind about?
One Global Mind was an hour-long event that took place on July 9th 2020. As 16:30 hit, thousands of children across the world tuned in to listen all about health and wellbeing with Bear Grylls, Captain Dave Henson OBE and also the likes of Heather Small. All guests spoke about their own stories and experiences, aiming to inspire the next generation of successful young people.
We had Bear Grylls answer questions from our very own Scarisbrick Hall pupils, Captain Dave Henson explained his journey to becoming a Paralympian, and Heather Small even performed a song live. As guests had been selected due to their powerful stories, we were thrilled that thousands of children across the UK, US, Nepal, Cambodia, Sweden, amongst others were able to watch this event live and benefit from truly fantastic stories.
One Global Mind in the news
The Global Classroom initiative, advocated by Dr Tedros Adhanom, Director-General of WHO spoke about how important it is for initiatives like The Global Classroom to connect young people virtually, especially in this current climate. As we have obtained brilliant spokespeople and industry leaders praise The Global Classroom, we got a place on the evening news and were spotted in numerous news/press sites.
The likes of Lancashire Evening Post, Local Ormskirk, FE news talked about our One Global Mind event and also we appeared on the radio and That’s TV Lancashire. As we aim to spread our story of The Global Classroom and our events far and wide, we were thrilled to achieve the limelight.
