During each Forum competition, we get to witness the communication style and attitude of each participant clearly through their interactions with their teammates. The team coaches nominate the ones they believe to have the most potential to become great leaders of tomorrow.
We call these future movers and shakers: Pioneers. They are fearless, relentless and they know the direction they are going. Vicky Ramos is one such Pioneer. Today, we are excited to announce that Vicky is launching her BWB Club in Los Sauces European School, Spain:
"What I strive for is making a difference when it comes to gender diversity and sustainability, as well as helping disabled people. My vision is about individual contributions that make a local difference and energize communities around us to multiply positive impact. I have 3 global goals: Mobilize youth to act now, Reduce waste individually in every action, and Educate for diversity. But I can't do this all on my own, will you join me? "
Vicky's BWB Club will be moderated by Mrs. Myriam Gil Simancas, Head of the Language Department. All BWB Club members from 14 countries are invited to meet and discuss topics chosen by themselves every weekend online. This weekend, the students will ponder the future of the food industry: will it become vegetarian due to the pollution caused by the meat industry? Mrs. Myriam, an ELL teacher herself, is excited to jump on board:
"As a language teacher, it is wonderful to see that the Club members can immerse themselves in an English Language speaking environment with global-minded students from around the world every weekend."
Next week we will announce the new Pioneer Award recipient. Good luck to the following nominees:
