The awards are an excellent opportunity for schools to showcase what they are doing to foster a culture of sustainability among children but this time it's not only the school that can get recognition - students and staff can also be celebrated for the work they do to promote sustainability.
The Global Sustainability Awards are organized by ARC (a pioneer in Education for Sustainable Development), along with AP Industry Conferences, Citta Education Foundation India, Earth Day Network & TERI for students, teaching & non-teaching staff, and schools. Our MD, Michaela Eschbach will be joining the judging panel once again this year.
The Awards look to applaud efforts by schools to foster the culture of sustainability among children and showcase the best practices from schools around the globe working towards a sustainable future.
The Global Sustainability Awards seek to promote the implementation of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) in schools around the globe. ESD empowers learners with knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values to address the challenges the world is facing today, be it climate change, loss of biodiversity, gender discrimination, or poverty. Education alone cannot achieve a sustainable future, however, education is the first step that leads to the goal of sustainability.
Here at F4S, we are passionate about preparing young people for the workplace of the future and this means ensuring that they are able to tackle some of the big issues facing our environment and working towards a more sustainable future. As part of this, we believe celebrating the good work already being done by schools across the world is an excellent opportunity to give young people the understanding they need to make the world a better place.
While the competition is global we are proud that two schools from the UK were recognised last year, Mulberry School (London) won gold and Torriano Primary School (London) won silver in the SDG Hero - UK category.
So why not follow their example and showcase your school, staff and students?
There is NO APPLICATION FEE (or any other hidden charges at this stage or any later stage) for these Awards.
All schools providing education from primary to 16 years old can enter and all students and staff members of these schools are also eligible for individual awards.
