  • Teaches young people about the ethical, scientific, and economic implications of incorporating sustainable practices into our current system, as a way to overcome these issues

  • Helps young people to develop a critical and solutions-oriented mindset that will enable them to tackle various issues of global significance

  • Guides young people through the process of sequential learning, at each step, ultimately toward their becoming positive change agents in their communities.
