Students role-play "World Leaders" for WWF & Globeducate Earth summit

WWF Globeducate online Earth Summit

We are so proud of our High School students, Alessandro L., Alessandro P., Giulia, Thamadi and Karen, who took part in the virtual "Our Planet" summit organised by WWF and Globeducate. Students took on roles of "World Leaders" and "Our Planet Experts", to devise solutions to the biggest threats to our planet's biomes. RIS students were experts of the 'Frozen World".

Matt Larsen-Dew, Head of Education at WWF UK said, The young people did themselves proud with an excellent and nuanced set of presentations that really did delve into the complexities of some issues. The "world leaders" were very impressive – both in their grasp of issues but especially in their willingness to work together and workshop ideas." Thank you to Ms Vanneste for coordinating the students' participation. Watch the "Frozen World" video made by the Eco Council students. Well done to Giulia D. C. in Year 11 for her work in editing the video!
