Sustainable Development Goals and Our School

Work on projects is an important part of Letovo’s learning programme. Our 9th graders are currently presenting their personal projects, and students of the IB Diploma Programme are working on CAS (Creativity, Activity, Service) projects. We will publish stories about some projects presented by Letovo students so readers can understand their topic, objectives, and results. Today our 11th grader will present his project on the UN Sustainable Development Goals and how these global goals are related to our school life. “In 2015, the UN presented its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). They are based on the need for development of the global society while protecting the prosperity of the future generations. The Goals are applicable not only to international relations, but also to cities, business, and education. Why use the SDGs strategy in school? It creates opportunities for multidisciplinary research and charity student activities: from separate waste collection already implemented in our school, to the active involvement in the life of local communities. It is also very important that our school is following the latest trends in this way: our students deciding to receive an education abroad will see that all Western universities pay considerable attention to sustainable development in their strategies. Our school chose seven main Goals that are the most relevant for the current situation: Health and Well-Being, Quality Education, Innovations, Sustainable Cities and Communities, Responsible Consumption, Terrestrial Ecosystem Conversation, and Partnerships. In the near future, groups of students will start working on a large number of projects, such as the Green Office, work with plastic collected at the school and development of biodegradable lunch boxes.” Soon our site will have a designated section for detailed information on the implementation of SDGs at Letovo.
