Globeducate student promises and messages featured at UK COP26 - the 26th UN Climate Change Conference hosted by Glasgow, UK, in partnership with Italy.
Through Globeducate's unique partnership with WWF-UK, our students were invited to contribute “promise leaves” to a WWF Tree of Promises, occupying centre stage in the Blue Zone of the COP26 Glasgow event.
The WWF Tree of Promises was on view to United Nations delegates between 31st October and 12th November. This zone was the scene of historic negotiations between those with the power to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
The tree's leaves displayed promises from our students and were broadcasted in the same space student-directed short films from three Globeducate schools - ISN Nice, Nobel Algarve British International School and Agora Portals International School. These messages of hope were directed at the decision makers of our planet's future.
Also being showcased was the Globeducate manifesto film, explaining our commitment to shaping the world for a more sustainable planet and fairer future.

Being invited to be part of this global event is not only proof that we are doing the right things. It is also evidence that we are doing things right. Our students have a voice. And they can, and will, Shape the World.
