Rivers of the World

Rivers of the World is the British Council’s flagship Arts and Education project delivered in partnership with the Thames Festival Trust. It provides opportunities and resources for teachers and pupils to learn, through a cross-curricular approach, about their local river environment and to compare this to other rivers in cities around the world. By exploring and reflecting on local and global issues, students in Bangladesh gain an international outlook and build the skills they need for life and work in an increasingly inter-connected global society. 

Any school in Bangladesh can download and access the Rivers of the World education pack from here which contains high quality river-themed cross-curricular lesson ideas, activities that explore the Thames and other international rivers around the world to use as inspiration for engaging lessons focusing on a range of curriculum areas including art, science, geography, history and English.
