After returning to Australia, I am fortunate to once again connect with the United Nations mission of progressing the SDGs in local schools. Currently associated with United Nations Association of Australia, NSW as their Director of Education we piloted our UN Day School Program in 2021. Schools in Australia just like in other parts of the world have been struggling with the challenges of Covid, floods and rains.
The UNAA (NSW) School Program – ‘United Nations Day – Peace People Planet’ is a lead up to the UN Day celebrations on Monday 24th October, 2022.
Our 2022 program offers opportunities for NSW schools to get involved with some wonderful local organizations supporting the SDGs like Love Food Hate Waste, Take 3 for the Sea and our amazing Education partners, Edu-fy, Upschool.co, Banksia Foundation and many more! The aim is to work together to make the world a better place #SDG17 #SDG4
