As part of Nord Anglia Education, we have a range of fantastic partnerships with world-renowned institutions. One of these is UNICEF and our students have been focused on ways in which we can make the world a better place through the Sustainable Development Goals. This has included campus specific-initiatives such as paper recycling bins, online activities with schools around the world through NAE Global Campus and through projects based in Qatar. I would like to highlight one of these projects today.
Mr. McArtney supported our very first Young Innovators Team to compete in a national competition held by QEERI (Qatar Environment and Energy Research Institute). This was a small team of ambitious Year 6 students at MK who were keen on making significant progress towards the UNICEF Sustainable Development Goals.
The project was to create a video which showed the team's research and innovation skills. This took them around Doha over the last five weeks to different institutes and locations with the tremendous help and involvement of their parents. They have learned a great deal about how Qatar produces its drinking and washing water, and how vital it is to use water in moderation to save energy and pollution. You can watch their video below:
