Planet Classroom’s featured guests include UNESCO's Assistant Director-General for Education, Stefania Giannini, who notes that teachers are the true heroes of global learning during the pandemic.

Events in our world have challenged people everywhere to grow from lessons learned about empathy, unity, and hope. In the inaugural Planet Classroom podcast, Orb, the new show's virtual guide, takes global audiences on a journey of learning with stories from young voices speaking about lessons learned from COVID19 around the world that engaged people’s imaginations as they explored new ideas.

Orb is joined by UNESCO’s Assistant Director-General for Education, Stefania Giannini, the music of Jim Papoulis performed by the globally acclaimed Young People’s Chorus of New York City, and young adults from many nations. Dimitri Papoulis, the son of Jim, reminds audiences that the Planet Classroom Network’s newly featured video, Give Us Hope, was originally created to bring people around the world together after the September 11th attacks. “I think the song is a powerful message of hope,” he comments, and it “calls for a better future for all of us, especially my generation."
