    Thinking positively we can be instrumental in sowing the seed in the child’s minds of the impact of wicked problems that we are facing at a global level and even at root level we can bring about sustainable changes in our everyday life . Much damage is done but it’s never too late to reverse the impact.

    I will ask students to learn more from their natural surroundings. The importance of nature should be introduced in all elements of a lesson . patterns in leaves , warmth of the sun , healing power of a cool breeze , the possibilities are endless.

    It was wonderful to come together as a team and work towards sustainable goals that would impact the children’s learning and help them be informed of the global effects of sustainable goals.
