About Changemakers

We at GOAL understand that this is an overwhelming time for everyone, especially young people and educators as they are faced with the challenge of Covid-19 restrictions and online learning. GOAL's Global Citizenship team have carefully designed creative, curriculum-linked lesson plans, including wellbeing activities, videos and worksheets to help primary school teachers explore Global Citizenship with their 1st - 6th class students and inspire action for a sustainable and fair world, even in a remote setting.

All support materials are readily available here on our website, in both English and Irish, to help teachers navigate their pupils through this uncertain time while fostering empathy, solidarity, and inspiring action for a brighter future for all.

The Changemakers programme resources have been developed in line with the Department of Education and Skills’ Covid-19 response plan for safe reopening of primary and special schools. All materials are implementable with the Covid-19 classroom restrictions and suitable for the virtual classroom space too.

Check out the lesson plans below, complete with teacher notes and ready to use in the virtual classroom! We are also offering online workshops (via zoom) while schools are closed, and will be offering to call in remotely to classrooms once schools return. Please book your workshop early to avoid disappointment.
