Time for Global Action - City Quest in Melitopol

On 9 June Melitopol School №23 will host the city quest for schoolchildren "Time for Global Action".

The event, which will take place in Horky Park, aims to familiarize students and teachers with the Sustainable Development Goals 2015-2030, disseminate information about them and attract students to finding tools for implementing these Goals and achieving them in Ukraine. These Sustainable Development Goals were adopted by the United Nations in September 2015 and are the targets for international development in the future.

Participation in the competition is open to teams of secondary schools, teams to include five members: four students of 5-8 grades and one teacher. The participants should have at least some idea about the QR-codes and geo-balls and have them operate, and must be familiar with the Sustainable Development Goals. Also, at least one participant must have a tablet or smartphone with Android OS with the Layer App installed on it.

Preparation for the quest is done by an initiative group of the School № 23: they will acquaint the participants with the SDGs, will explain how to work with QR-codes and geo-balls, install Layer software on the participants’ devices, and will conduct a master class on how to use these, as well as will make assignments and will be engaged in the coordination of the quest. All this will be done during the first, preparatory, stage.

In addition, the preparatory stage involves taking applications (name and phone numbers of participants and contacts of the teacher-coordinator), which should be sent to the email:, as well as briefings on safety.

The second stage - is the quest itself, in which team members will have to cope with specific  tasks. The end of this stage the whole event will conclude with the awarding ceremony.
