Edition II
Global Project Edition II
beaconhouse Global project 

Beaconhouse introduced the “Beaconhouse Online Global Projects” in May 2020. This initiative was launched with the aim to bring all its students together, irrespective of geographical locations in order to have the opportunity to collaborate, share critical dialogue and innovate creative solutions to their joint real-life problems.

Beaconhouse is continuing to unite young communities around the world to support them in creating their own network of learning and collaboration through the Global Projects initiative.

The selected themes have been aligned to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 2015:

  • SDG 3 Good health and well being
  • SDG 10 Reduced Inequalities
  • SDG 12 Responsible Consumption and Production
  • SDG 16 Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions

The Beaconhouse Online Global Projects provides students with an opportunity to use both synchronous and asynchronous online collaboration to promote interdisciplinary learning and sharing of unique ideas and experiences.

In the second round of Beaconhouse Global Projects, Beaconhouse aims to promote social entrepreneurship and consciousness by encouraging young adults (ages 14 – 18) to work together to find solutions that will create a positive social impact, while ensuring that student agency and student voice are  at the forefront of the  Beaconhouse Global Projects.

Rationale

Over the last two decades the term “social entrepreneurship” has emerged as a recognizable field in development work with young people. This growing interest began in the 1980s with the emergence of two schools of practice that aimed to invest in young people to promote positive social change and innovative solutions that can be sustained and replicated. (UNICEF: Adolescents and Civil Engagement: Social Entrepreneurship and Young People, 2007)

Beaconhouse Global Projects aim to focus on social entrepreneurship in youth and highlight the importance of this approach in contributing towards the development of critical skills and competencies of young people to positively engage in society, exercise leadership and become involved in social change.

Through global learning, we aim for students to become informed, open-minded, and responsible people who are attentive to diversity across the spectrum of differences. Additionally, the aim is for students to understand how their actions affect both local and global communities, and address the world’s most pressing and enduring issues collaboratively and equitably

The themes

The selected themes have been aligned to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 2015:

The social cure: our lives, our health, our wellbeing
Time for Equality: All for one
Politics, Products and Markets: Buy less, choose well, make it last
Peace expeditions: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”
