Making our voice count!
The fifth grade students are doing a project with two Roundsquare schools: Aubrick Multicultural Bilingual School located in São Paulo, Brazil and Collingwood School located in West Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The objective of the project is to encourage students to collaborate with peers across borders, creatively analyze information on selected SDG goals and propose/share solutions to an identified problem in their immediate context.
To flag off the project and in the spirit of internationalism and environmental stewardship, 165 students involved in the three schools met in a ZOOM meeting on Thursday October 29 for a digital handshake. Students researching the same research strands (water, lifestyle, food and emissions) had the opportunity to meet each other and to share their interests and research on the topics.
At the end of the project in November, these young environmental vanguards will have the opportunity to showcase examples of where local action can be taken on their selected topic and make their voice count on possible ways to reduce our ecological footprint.
