MY HERO Call to Action Learning Circle Participant Page

16 Week Session

The 16-week MY HERO: Call to Action Learning Circle introduces students to heroes of all ages working on the SDGs. Students share their ideas through iEARN’s platform, choose an issue they feel strongly about and design an action plan. Students will create a final project (written story, film, artwork or audio) either individually or as a group honoring those making a positive difference working on the SDGs or documenting their effort to create positive change in the world. Teachers collaborate with other educators through the forum and engage their students in collaborative work.
