Challenge

Education is the cornerstone of sustainable development yet there are currently 1.8 billion young people (aged 10-24) worldwide and over half of this population will not have the skills necessary to participate in the emerging global workforce. the current society is living on the costs of future generations, problems such as climate change and unemployment are alarmingly emergent. very few girls in Rwandan rural communities can only make it to STEM and environment-related courses.

Solution

The major raise in awareness into a sustainable lifestyle can be well done during education, Sustainability week program inspires children in secondary schools of 4 provinces of Rwanda into becoming sustainability role models that our society needs. this program teaches children everything around sustainability best practices and furthermore prepares and enables them to pursue STEM and environmental studies of their choices.

Long-Term Impact

This program more explicitly addresses the challenges of quality and equity in education. enables for more stewards of climate actions and shape children in a way that they will be able to handle complex issues of our time and in the future, alleviating their families from extreme poverty and contributing to a climate-resilient and sustainable future of our society overall.
