The calendar for your school class

Support & Learn

With the 24 GOOD DEEDS Advent Calendar, school classes can support projects worldwide with teachers encouraging positive actions through their lessons. Thanks to our comprehensive information pack, the daily opening of a calendar door becomes part of a unique learning experience: your class will get to learn about 24 global challenges and what can be done to solve them.

Where can I find the information material for the classroom?

Teachers and lecturers in educational institutions can receive the information packs for the given projects in advance in order to prepare for the class. By donating 48  dollars or 96 dollars, the impact of the good deed will be doubled or trippled. The information material is also available if your class is not making a donation to the calendar.

Information material for 2020 will be available by mid November as a PDF file. In order to receive the information material for 2019 as a PDF, please follow these links:

Improve geographical knowledge

With the 24 GOOD DEEDS Advent Calendar a school class will open the door to another place in the word every day. Students will not only learn where the place is located on the map, but they will also gain an understanding of how people there live and how this might be different from their own way of life.

Understanding social and ecological challenges

Behind every good deed there is a social or ecological theme, which is made tangible through the concrete solutions brought to the issue by the good deeds. The 24 GOOD DEEDS team has created comprehensive background information on every project which is made available to you and which can be used to encourage further learning about the context of the good deeds.

Discuss personal consumer behaviour and values

The calendar offers and alternative to traditional holiday consumerism. Your students are offered the opportunity to share their personal impressions and encourage each other to adopt more conscious consumer behaviour.

Developing solutions

Through awareness-raising of global challenges, the 24 GOOD DEEDS Advent Calendar encourages action. The good deeds are examples of the many creative and effective solutions to the world’s problems, and they provide school children with the sense that they carry responsibility to take on these challenges and contribute to solving them.
