SDG game next date 29 June

This game was inspired by the United Nations' 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. The game has participants working together and in groups, exploring how the world can achieve sustainability goals. Will you create a prosperous, fair and sustainable world? The whole experience takes 2-3 hours including playing and reflection. Plus some extra time for networking. Participants often experience a change in perspective. Most players finish the game feeling excited, connected and ready to take action. Players often ask, “What can I do next to make a difference?” While players do finish the game with an understanding of the goals, targets and the various ways the world can achieve these, the change in attitude and worldview can be the most significant effect.     . . .

Big thank you to Hong Kong Living for a great awards ceremony last week. The turnout of school principals and education company founders was a fine testament to the esteem they have been held in. A big thank you of course to the judges Anne-Maree Soon, Divya Samtani, Natasha Jain, Darren A. Bryant, Matt Harris, Ed.D., Crystal W., Elke Van dermijnsbrugge and Jessie Wong, and to the thousands of readers who voted. Great to have ITS Education Asia in the group. This is driven in large by the work we do beyond the classroom which is supporting the SDGs with the YCI . . .

ITS Education Asia and UNITAR to Collaborate on Youth Ambassador Asia Pacific Programme

The United Nations Institute of Training and Research (UNITAR) and ITS Education Asia will jointly launch the UNITAR Youth Ambassador Asia Pacific Programme in Hong Kong and other cities in China.
