This weekend, Buddies Without Borders Club members from around the world will meet up and explore how they can collaborate with like-minded students across the borders to work on the Sustainable Development Goals they care about the most.
It is hard to imagine, but since we launched less than two years ago, BWB (Buddies Without Borders) Clubs are now soon to be in 16 countries, with the latest addition of Branyston School in the UK, Towheed in UAE, and Los Sauces in Spain.
(Thanks so much to Ms. Lisa Kearney from Bryanston in the United Kingdom, Mrs. Negin Saadat from Towheed in UAE, and Mrs. Myriam Gil and Mrs. Marite from Spain!)
In our clubs, students are given a chance to connect across cultural and language backgrounds to make a difference through joint projects. They design and conduct local actions, and they meet up online weekly to chat about global topics.
This is impossible without the support of the following Club Schools:
Canada: Assumption College Catholic High School
USA: Whittle School & Studios
Bolivia: Saint Andrew's School
Brazil: Coree International School
Morocco: George Washington Academy
Ireland: Villiers School
Spain: Los Sauces European Private School
Turkey: Uskudar American Academy
Cyprus: The Junior & Senior School
Uganda: Kabojja International School
India: Strawberry Field High School
India: Genesis Global School
Taiwan: Tsai Hsing High School
Japan: Shonan Shirayuri Gakuen High School
It is equally impossible without the support of the Higher Education Workshop contributors:
Germany: Jacobs University
Spain: IE University
EU: Forward College
UK: Mr. Phil Garner
USA: CSUMB (service-learning)
USA: Study in Maryland (pending approval)
Costa Rica: Veritas University
Taiwan: Mr. Victor Tao
Now it is your turn to get involved. The application for the March Forum will be closed in three days. Students aged 12-18 will be challenged to create a Wellness Program for teens to improve their well-being, particularly at the time of instability. Join us!
