Globalizing Education for a Sustainable Future
Sustainability is a key focus area for QF and QF aims to develop and advocate best practices for environmental sustainability nationally. Aligned to this, our pre-university programs have several strategic initiatives for graduating students who are aware of the UN environmental global goals and can take action to progress towards these goals in the local community.
The discussion will focus on:
(i) How can K-12 students learn more about the connection of the Global Goals to the local context?
(ii) How can we empower students and youth to take concrete action towards the Global Goals in their local communities?
