The Our World Irish Aid Awards gives you the chance to learn more about the developing world and to speak out for a better future for all the world’s people.
The theme of this year’s Awards is ‘Wellbeing for People and Planet’. Using our Wellbeing for People and Planet pupil’s magazine and accompanying lesson plans, you can work on a creative piece showcasing what you learned or what inspired you. You can use writing, artwork, music or film and submit your work for a chance to feature in our Global Goal Getters online multi-media magazines, by kids, for kids.
We also want you to share your ideas and information with your friends and family at school and at home! Everyone in the world, including you, has an important role to play in fighting global poverty and creating a better world. Taking part in the Awards is a good place to start.
Are you and your class up to the challenge?

The Our World Awards seek to enable pupils to learn about the lives of children and their families in developing countries and how Ireland, through Irish Aid, and 192 other countries in the United Nations are working together to create a safer and fairer world, and a better future for all the world’s children. Pupils, as global citizens, can play their part by taking part in the Awards and engaging with these issues.
This year’s theme, Wellbeing for People and Planet, invites pupils to learn about the Global Goals and how Irish Aid, the government’s overseas development cooperation programme, is working hard to improve the lives and wellbeing of people in developing countries.
All countries of the United Nations, including Ireland, are now working together to create a better world and a better future for us all by 2030, through the Global Goals for Sustainable Development which build on the achievements of the previous UN Millennium Development Goals.
