One Planet Youth Summit where educator-student teams inspire on behalf of protecting our planet.
One Planet Youth Summit, where educator-student teams inspire other teams by sharing their authentic global learning and active citizenship on behalf of protecting our planet.
Educators and students are positioned as teams because we are all adapting to a changing world alongside one another; we cannot afford to work in silos based on age, experience or expertise. We are all in this together. The One Planet Youth Summit creates space for educators and students to come together to share their learning, to challenge each other and themselves with new ideas, and to make connections between projects and to the bigger picture.
“It really boils down to this: that all life is interrelated. We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied into a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one destiny, affects all indirectly.” ~ Martin Luther King Jr.
The One Planet Youth Summit experience allows for the illumination of Dr. King’s quote, as we come together to see how all life and all actions are interrelated, how we all play a role, and how we all have a place in this world.
WHY ATTEND THE ONE PLANET YOUTH SUMMIT?
The ability to put knowledge into action is critical in today’s world; the One Planet Youth Summit is a venue that allows educators and students to see how the actions they take are a critical piece of a larger effort to build a culture of sustainability that goes far beyond their school and local community. Applying and sharing knowledge, skills and experiences in order to contribute to this culture of sustainability, creates the conditions for universal access to basic human rights- an end goal of a truly global and progressive education.
