Learning The World's Largest Lesson

On May 26, tens of thousands of people around the world will be learning a lesson - the World's Largest Lesson, held to raise awareness of the tragedy of landmines and encourage students and teachers to raise funds for Adopt-A-Minefield and other anti-landmine organizations. Since 2001, when founded and held the first World's Largest Lesson, hundreds of thousands of teachers and students in more than 120 countries have participated in the event.

The last World's Largest Lesson was held in 2003, with the support of Sir Paul McCartney and Heather Mills McCartney who said, "As Patrons and Goodwill ambassadors of Adopt-A-Minefield, we are delighted to support the World's Largest Lesson 2003. Through the World's Largest Lesson thousands of students around the world will become aware of this most important issue and help raise funds to solve the problem."

"In 2005, we want to get even more schools, teachers and students involved in this worthwhile, charitable event. Through this programme we hope to raise awareness amongst millions of people around the world about these terrible weapons," said Christopher Hogg, CEO.

The 26 May 2005 lesson can be downloaded and printed from the World's Largest Lesson web pages.
