SCHOOL VISITS

School visits in UN City Copenhagen are available for 6-16 year old students from Monday to Thursday between 10am-12am or 1pm-3pm. Unfortunately, it is not possible to eat lunch inside UN City. All themes provide students with insight into the United Nations and the interconnectedness of all of the Sustainable Development Goals.

All guests must go through a security check similar to that at an airport. Before your visit, you must provide us with a list of the names of all participants (in text format). Students aged 12 and up must bring their yellow health card or similar to present in the security check, while all adults must bring a valid photo ID. Students younger than 12 are exempt from showing ID.

Global Goals


The Global Goals visit will give your students an introduction to all of the Sustainable Development Goals. Through discussions and quiz elements, we will cover how the goals came to be, how they are connected, and why they are important and relevant all over the world.

Available for all ages.

Poverty


Poverty is connected to many of the goals in one way or another. This theme works with global poverty to give students an understanding of what poverty means to both children and adults.

The visit includes games and storytelling to show students that poverty limits individuals, as well as how these limitations affects a person throughout their lives.

Available for 6-9 year old students. 

Hunger


This theme focuses on giving young students an understanding of hunger – what is it, why do people go hungry, and how does it affect their health?

During the visit we will use storytelling and games to engage the students and allow them to use multiple senses.

Available for 6-9 year old students.

 

Inequality


Inequality is a very broad theme that can be connected to many of the other goals. Therefore, this theme works with many of the problems presented across the sustainable development goals.

Through activities and discussions, we will introduce the students to different aspects of inequality with special emphasis on economic inequality.

Available for 10-16 year old students.

Climate


Global warming is a subject often discussed in the media, but what is it, and what is the UN doing about it?

We take point of departure in the knowledge the students already have on the subject, and use group work, games or other activities to investigate the impact of global warming around the world.

Available for all ages.

Life Below Water


This theme gives students insight into what the oceans mean to our societies. We will touch upon subjects such as ocean pollution, ocean acidification, and overfishing.

Through activities and games students will achieve a greater understanding of their own impact when it comes to protecting our oceans.

Available for 10-16 year old students.

Life on Land


The Life on Land-theme is mainly about biodiversity. Globally, more than 31,000 species are threatened, and it has become clear that we need to change the way we treat wild animals and ecosystems.

A visit with this focus will give your students insight into the importance of biodiversity and how we influence our surroundings – both the surroundings right outside our windows and those that are far from us.

Available for 10-16 year old students.

Peace and Security


In this theme we work with conflict and peace, and touches upon subjects such as flight and migration.

During the visit, the students must solve a conflict. In doing this, they will gain insight into the complexity of conflict resolution within the UN.

The visit will also give your students an understanding of the journey of a refugee, the difference between a refugee and a migrant, and reasons a person might have for leaving their home.

Available for 10-16 year old students.
