Global Educator of the Year Award 2017

Nominations are now open for our Global Educator of the Year Award for 2017!

The award was launched by Think Global in 2015 to recognise and celebrate the contribution of educators helping young people to become good global citizens of the future. We’ve been delighted with the responses we’ve had over the past two years, from students and colleagues alike nominating educators who had inspired them.

Follow these links to read more about previous winners and runners up: Elly Lengthorn in 2016 and Sarah Maille in 2015.

As with last year’s Award, we would especially like to hear about those individuals who have gone above and beyond in raising people’s awareness of one or more of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. What have they done to deepen understanding of these issues and how are they encouraging people to take action?

This work might focus on one goal in particular, or several. You may think about what this individual is already doing to promote one of the goals – for example, are they raising awareness about climate change? About human rights? You can find more information about the 17 different goals on the Global Goals website or via the World’s Largest Lesson.

We welcome nominations of classroom teachers, teaching assistants, school governors, head teachers, and anyone who works in the broader field of education.

In 2017, the Award process will be:

  • Nominations invited by Friday 5th of May
  • Panel of judges consider in the w/c 5th of June
  • Award presentation ceremony late afternoon of Friday 14th of July in London.

The winner will receive

  • £500 and 2 free places for their school on a Think Global online training course
  • Prize cup.

The deadline for nominations is Friday 5th May 2017.
