Students from Nord Anglia International School Hong Kong even came to the central team to interview CEO Andrew Fitzmaurice on his views about the Global Goals and the future of our planet. 

In his latest blogs on the Huffington Post, Nord Anglia Education CEO Andrew Fitzmaurice, shares his insights on the importance of global citizenship and giving students a platform to voice their perspectives and play a role on the future of the planet.
