"In some parts of the world, students are going to school every day. It's their normal life. But in other parts of the world, we are starving for education... it's like a precious gift. It's like a diamond…"
- Malala Yousafzai

A solid example from Pricewaterhouse Cooper United Arab Emirates (PwC UAE):
PwC UAE conducted a small number of one-hour long interactive classes with the pupils. The children also took part in lively debates among themselves and with their teachers about why each of the SDGs is important.
The results of the pilot found 78% of children said they now felt more confident to talk to people about SDGs outside school, and 92% of children said they cared more about social and environmental issues after learning about the SDGs.
