AISHK Sustainability Group: International Youth Day

On 14 August, from 2pm-6pm, the newly-founded ITS Education Foundation Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) is hosting one of their first sustainability-focused events at our school. The YAC consists of 10 students who are all from different schools, including from AISHK,  all with an interest in sustainability.

The theme of the event is Intergenerational Solidarity: Creating a World for All Ages, and it is celebrating the UN’s International Youth Day. Featuring over 20+ youth NGOs, this is an incredible opportunity to learn more about sustainability and their initiatives. There will be a variety of activities such as photo booths, keynote speakers, Q&A sessions, and artboards.

From the YAC organising this event, to AISHK hosting it, we all have the same aim, which is to increase exposure and awareness to the Sustainable Development Goals, and the issues and potential solutions that surround them. As we have seen in previous sustainability initiatives from these last two years, AISHK wants to raise awareness for sustainability and continue on the path to create more initiatives.

In addition, this is an invaluable chance to connect and meet these featured youth changemakers. By learning more about their initiatives, you can gain an interest in what they do and possibly work with them in the future, or create your own initiatives!

If this event is of interest to you, please fill out either the in-person attendance or the online attendance form!
