About the Project

The goal of the Global Issues project is to raise awareness and understanding of development issues and of the UN Millennium Development Goals as one of the most ambitious initiatives today to tackle the poverty in the world. We consider the lessons of English as a foreign language as an ideal opportunity to introduce global issues and MDGs not only to students at the secondary schools and universities but also to adults in evening classes and company courses. We believe that bringing such issues to English lessons can make a difference.
