17 Sustainable Development Goals Project Challenge

Brillantmont students: getting to grips with the problems of tomorrow’s world

| 0 comments| by Sarah Frei Sarah Frei

The G7 discussions are over, but the problems and questions discussed by world leaders about the kind of world future generations will inherit remain. We all have a responsibility to reflect on these issues and as an international school, perhaps even more so. With this in mind, Brillantmont students participated in a Sustainable Development Goals Project Challenge.

 

 

The purpose was to develop international knowledge, outlook and global citizenship. The Student Leaders chose one of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and worked together with other members of their Houses to explore different goals – Gender Equality, Climate Action, Zero Hunger, No Poverty and Quality Education, reflecting on how these can be achieved and the dramatic consequences they have on world populations should no progress be made.

They exchanged ideas and viewpoints and came up with suggestions as to how easy changes in our daily habits can bring about sustainable change.
Not only did this challenge raise questions which we should all be asking ourselves; it also helped develop the leadership skills of the Student Leaders as well as members of the group who led sections of the project and delivered some compelling presentations to a jury.

No action should ever be considered just a drop in the ocean, since a drop creates a ripple, which creates a wave and so on. We can all be vectors to bring about sustainable change and no difference is too small.
