On 18 September 2019 the British Council signed a memorandum of understanding and cooperation to work together on the development and dissemination of a Ministry of Education initiative called ‘Global Challenge’. 'Global Challenge' is an online quiz game designed to promote sustainable development in line with the United Nations Agenda 2030 on sustainable development, of which both the UK and Argentina are signatories. The objective of the game is to promote global citizenship and consciousness of the challenges of sustainable development, by teaching young people about the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We are supporting the project by helping the Ministry to develop a version in English, which can then be shared in its global network. The memorandum of understanding will also support future cooperation between the Ministry and the British Council in educational initiatives related to the teaching of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

“We are very excited to have signed this agreement with the Ministry of Education, and to be involved in this worthwhile project. We hope that we can build on this going forward to develop new initiatives in partnership with the Ministry!” – Robert Chatfield, Country Director for the British Council in Argentina.

 

 

About the British Council

The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities. We were founded in 1934 and incorporated by Royal Charter in 1940.

We create friendly knowledge and understanding between the people of the UK and other countries. We do this by making a positive contribution to the UK and the countries we work with – changing lives by creating opportunities, building connections and engendering trust.

We work with more than 100 countries across the world in the fields of arts and culture, the English language, education and civil society. Last year, we reached more than 80 million people directly and 791 million people overall, including online, through broadcasts and publications.
