Support & Learn
“We love the conversation starters and projects we can support. When collecting for the donation amount, each child thinks about what good deed they can do themselves. For example, some help their parents in the household, others have baked and sold biscuits or even sold their "old" toys. The children are so proud that through their own contribution and good deed they can bring about and support such great deeds.”
- Miriam I., primary school teacher at Schkola Ostritz
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.
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.
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.
