The World’s Largest Lesson. Resources for Online and At Home Learning. Earth School JUST LAUNCHED


Welcome to Earth School! We’re embarking on a month of daily adventures – or Quests – that will help you understand and celebrate our natural world, while learning about how dependent we are on our planet. Now more than ever, we need to protect, nurture and care for Earth – so join us to learn something amazing every weekday between Earth Day (April 22nd) and World Environment Day (June 5th). Within each lesson, you’ll find fascinating resources compiled by Earth experts and ideas for getting involved in ways that count. Join us to learn more, create, act and share your journey (#EarthSchool) towards a cleaner and greener life. Today, over 1.5 billion children aren’t able to go to school. In response to this education crisis, UNEP and TED-Ed – with the support of an incredible array of educators and partner organizations – launched Earth School, 30 days of nature-focused content and environmental adventures for learners of all ages. Each Quest consists of a discovery video and quiz, combined with a series of engaging learning resources. Earth School learners are invited to check out additional content to watch, read, teach, do and share, all curated by environmental experts.

World’s Largest Lesson brings the Global Goals to children all over the world and unites them in taking action. Since our launch in September 2015, we have reached over 130 countries and impacted over 8 million children each year. 

We believe all children everywhere should have the opportunity to learn about the Global Goals and feel inspired to take action for them. That’s why all our resources are free, open source and translated into over 10 languages. We believe in the power of creativity and that all children can find their own individual way of taking action for the Global Goals. That’s why we are really proud of our animated films, written by Sir Ken Robinson, animated by Aardman and introduced by well-known figures like Emma Watson, Serena Williams and Malala Yousafzai. 

We encourage you to use our materials to teach lessons, run projects and engage young people in supporting the Global Goals! 

We are part of the wider Project Everyone team and are delivered in partnership with UNICEF, along with many other NGOs, private sector organisations and foundations. 

Introduce the Sustainable Development Goals to children and young people everywhere and unite them in action.

17 Global Goals to achieve these 3 extraordinary things by 2030.


Stories are effective in teaching because they require readers to not only passively receive information, but also interact with the text and images to construct meaning, and that is the key to the magic. Words and pictures work together!
