The Answers You Need
WHAT ARE THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS?
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or Global Goals are a collection of 17 interlinked global goals designed to be a "blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all".
The SDGs were adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030. They are designed to bring the world to several life-changing ‘zeros’, including zero poverty, hunger, AIDS and discrimination against women and girls.
HOW DOES THE SELECTION PROCESS WORK?
First, you will sign up your child for a 15 minute intake. This will take place online and you will directly receive the link to the meeting. We ask you to email us the latest report card and - if possible - the MAP test scores prior to the intake. During our chat with your child, we will mostly check the level of English, which needs to be fluent and the level of enthusiasm and interest in sustainability in general.
We will select a small number of students (max 12) to participate in each project. We only work with students who are committed and enthusiastic and have the ability to communicate their ideas properly. We work with advanced children and who have the potential to achieve at levels we would not normally expect from children of their age.
We try to come up with diverse teams of students, with students of various cultural backgrounds.
Four weeks before the program starts, you will hear if your child was selected and you will be asked to make the payment to secure its spot.
WHAT COSTS ARE INCLUDED IN THE PRICE?
All costs are included in the price, including the costs of transport when doing a field trip.
During the after-school project on Saturday's, students will be serves some drinks and fruits. During the summer school, a simple and sustainable lunch is also included.
