Sustainability is a key focus area for QF and QF aims to develop and advocate best practices for environmental sustainability nationally.

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?
