The 2018 United Nations Global Festival of Action for Sustainable Development took place from Wednesday 21 March to Friday 23 March at the World Conference Center – Bonn, near the UN Campus in Germany’s former capital city. Our very own Wrixon Mpanang’ombe attended this second edition of the annual event, representing Our Fresh Futurez and Malawi (not as an official Malawian delegate).
Wrixon was one of the volunteers selected from around the world by Project Everyone (a UK based NGO) to participate in the World’s Largest Lesson – Bonn Activation. In this role, Wrixon developed a lesson as part of a multinational team, and taught the Sustainable Development Goals at Gesamtschule Euskirchen school, located an hour’s drive outside the city of Bonn.
Apart from being inspired by the different narratives of the various change makers that he met at the festival, some of his highlights include the boat cruise on the Rhine River and participating in the MY World workshop both organized by the UN SDG Action Campaign.
Here are some photos from the experience:
