A Successful Challenge!

We are delighted to share a blog written by student Tresen from Sotogrande International School, who is part of a team delivering a Global Goals project for the 2019-20 Global Goals Competition.

Their project is among over 957 social action projects currently running as part of the GSL movement and we are excited to be supporting them to design and lead positive social change in their community. 

We are so proud to have reached so many people and made such a big difference this past friday!

Project Overview

Hello again, Global Social Leaders! We are proud to announce that our Clean Plate Challenge was a huge success with countless people participating across the world! We are so thankful that people have come together to help put an end to food waste on the planet, even during a global crisis, and for educating themselves and those around them about the importance of reducing food waste! Here is a message from the class regarding the event:

“Congratulations to all of the students and staff at SIS and also our partner schools around the world who participated in the Clean Plate Challenge event on Friday 13th March. Thank you all for bringing so much positive energy to help us achieve our goals, especially during these challenging times. It was fantastic to see so many of you participating, not just from school, but also those of you who took part in the event from your own homes. You have demonstrated great resilience and the support that you have all given us evidences how much we can achieve when we all work collaboratively in partnership to achieve our sustainable development goals. Working together increases the impact we have in making the word a better place.

Together we have taken action to help reduce food waste. Making informed choices about responsible consumption and production can help us make a real difference to our environment. Well done to all those involved.”
