The IB learner profiles capture important attributes that go into the making of internationally-minded young people, who care about building a better world. Sharing the stories of real people who embody these attributes can inspire our students to identify with experiences and values that shape our common humanity. 

These collections showcase real-world heroes from three geographical regions – Africa, Europe & the Middle East, The Americas, and Asia-Pacific – capturing their life and work through the lens of the learner profile attributes. Mapping the work of these individuals to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the collections are designed to provoke thought, ignite conversations, and – ultimately – inspire action as your students begin to make meaningful real world connections.

Use these collections to:

  • Build real-world connections with the learner profile attributes
  • Create service learning opportunities & inspire students to take action for SDGs
  • Reflect upon & question implicit & explicit biases towards communities, cultures, and perspectives
