An exciting partnership between Globeducate and WWF will impact on the education of more than 25,000 young people and their wider communities. Globeducate is one of the leading K-12 international schools´ groups in the world, with more than 50 schools in 10 countries and has launched a global agenda for change which prepares its students to become global citizens who can shape the world.
The partnership will see all schools host screenings of the Netflix Our Planet series and educational activities associated with this for the whole school community. Students will also take part in the charity´s Wear it Wild event in June, raising money to protect endangered species. Other activities will include students attending a summit at the WWF-UK Living Planet Centre, guest speaker events at individual schools, and attendance for students in the UK at the David Attenborough Premiere screening at the Royal Albert Hall.
“The challenges that lie ahead for society as a result of climate change and biodiversity loss are global ones. Connecting students, teachers and educational programmes across borders is therefore a powerful tool in preparing the next generations to tackle these challenges and play a key role in defining a sustainable future. WWF’s partnership with Globeducate schools across nine countries is crucial, allowing us to inspire and engage a global educational community at this pivotal time for our planet.” Matt Larsen-Daw, Our Planet Education Manager at WWF-UK.
“We are delighted to be the first international schools´ group to work this closely with WWF. Globeducate schools prepare each student to be a global citizen who can shape the world and we launched our global agenda at the start of this year. With the WWF having played a key role in identifying the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for 2030, it was a natural partnership for us. WWF will support our schools in sourcing inspirational speakers and our teachers will have access to online training .” Daniel Jones, Chief Education Officer of Globeducate
