The Global Educator of the Year award recognises educators who have gone above and beyond in raising awareness and deepening understanding of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and encouraging people to take action.
Think Global has run the award since 2015. In 2017, we held a special event celebrating global learning and presented the award to Jane Yates, then Senior Teacher at Armathwaite Community Primary School. Find out more about the finalists.
“The Global Educator of the Year award, and the work of Think Global, in inspiring, equipping and recognising the role teachers at the heart of global citizenship education is fantastic. Oxfam is delighted to be part of such an important event, congratulates all the finalists and looks forward to seeing what teachers will be doing in 2018!”
