Following the event, the student ambassadors also spent time reflecting on what they learned from the event, what challenged them, and what they will do going forward once they are back at school.
Aaron Yong, a student Nord Anglia International School Pudong Shanghai, said, “For the betterment of our future, I will take action. Whether it is not using plastics straws or wasting food, I will take on the role of a young leader to motivate others around me for a good cause.”
Megan Fisher from the British International School of Washington, said, “At our school, we need to further emphasise the importance of the SDGs, with the focus on the reduction of paper used within our school and also attempt to instigate a successful recycling programme.”
Other students have committed to starting clubs at school around the SDGs to inspire younger students.
Congratulations to all our students who joined this year's NAE-UNICEF Student Summit. It's always inspirational seeing them sharing big ideas and discussing what can be done to make a positive difference in the world.
