57 Young Leaders Will Help Transform Learning Environments
Greetings from Global Schools!
Today we are thrilled to announce the 57 Global Schools Ambassadors , who will represent the Global Schools Program - an initiative to integrate SDGs in school setting - and coordinate local efforts to empower schools and teachers to educate children on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and why it matters to them.
Global Schools Ambassadors Program will play an important role in promoting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and its importance in school settings. The Ambassadors have gone through an intensive training that have equipped them with knowledge of SDGs and education for sustainable development ‘ESD” tools to help transform learning environments, promote the SDGs in various school settings, and mobilize young people around the SDGs.
The Ambassadors’ Class of 2018 consists of 57 Ambassadors from 15 countries, representing every region in the world and are recognized for their passion in empowering students and young people to implements SDGs in their lifestyle, behaviors, and careers.
The SDGs provide concrete framework and reflect aspirations to create a more sustainable future. Hence, it is important that young people to be engaged. Schools provide platforms for students to understand more about sustainable development and it is thus crucial for them to integrate the SDG concepts into school-settings. The ambassadors’ role is not only to directly engage other young students and raise their awareness on the SDGs, but also to help schools integrate the SDGs and connect with the relevant organizations through the Global Schools’ network. Together, Ambassadors and schools can explore, design and implement innovative ways of engaging students in the efforts to advocate for the SDGs. Are you interested in to be part of this effort?
