#Love London. Love the World
Climate Action 28: Waste less (Global Goal 12: Responsible production and consumption)
Target audience: Children age 5-9ish and their families
- Thomas the Tank Engine and the Circular Economy
The Global Goals suggest that Londoners might need to be less wasteful in the future. You’re now going to explore the City of London and think about Thomas’s ideas.
- The City of London
Londoners have worked and traded in the City of London for hundreds of years. Join Bow the Bee to find out how the City has developed and changed over time. It’s going to be a lot of fun, are you ready?
Afterwards, watch the video again and think about your trip to the City of London. Did you see anything in the City of London that Thomas would have been happy about?
Background to this resource
This project aims to:
- Connect London’s schools to great resources based on their city and
- To suggest ways to introduce a global perspective to their work.
Each blog will be based on two major curriculum resources available freely to teachers:
- The London Curriculum– developed by experts in their field working in partnership with the Mayor of London and his Education and Youth team.
- The World’s Largest Lesson– produced by Project Everyone in partnership with Unicef to help schools address three major challenges:
- End extreme poverty
- Fight inequality and injustice
- Tackle climate change
Each blog will aim to provide ways for teachers to reflect on these big issues through their own contexts, subject areas and from a London perspective.
