Looking to engage your students with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)? The 2022-2023 UNC World View Global Fellows have you covered!

Meet the Global Fellows! This year’s UNC World View Global Fellows program brought together fourteen talented K-12 educators from across North Carolina, from Henderson County to Brunswick County.

Map of North Carolina with stars over the following counties: Henderson, Gaston, Guilford, Cabarrus, Wake, Brunswick, Pitt, and Greene.
UNC World View Global Fellows came from across the state of North Carolina.


They met both in Chapel Hill and virtually, and these collaborative sessions were enriched by the diversity of subject areas taught and years of experience represented by the group. Fellows received one-on-one coaching, learned from global experts at the K-12 symposium, and workshopped lessons in specially designed sessions to ensure educators were well-supported as they dove into the curricular connections to the SDGs. At the end of the semester, the Fellows published twenty-eight lesson plans, complete with corresponding state standards, essential questions, relevant resources, activities, and assignment descriptions, that are available for educators for free online!

Think your subject area might be out of scope? Take a look at the diverse classes these lessons can be integrated into, from civics literacy and visual arts to environmental studies and mathematics, in addition to social studies, foreign language, and language arts classes!
