Alison Bellwood is the Founder of the World’s Largest Lesson, a project to raise awareness, support and action for the Sustainable Development Goals throughout the education community – both educators and students alike. By working closely with founding partner UNICEF, UNESCO and other international education organisations, the project has engaged millions of teachers and students in understanding the SDGs and applying them to their own local context. This drives social action projects, advocacy efforts and awareness of the wider world.
Alison believes that schools should become engines for sustainability in local communities. As institutions they can represent the ambitions of the Sustainable Development Goals through everything they do, including the provision of project based learning opportunities for students that deliver real impact.
Alison is a creative communications expert with a specific focus on children and education. She has worked extensively with some of the world’s most recognised brands (PepsiCo, Unilever, Nestlé).
