2020 Education is a movement of young people, teachers, professionals and organisations worldwide, who believe in a sustainable and equitable future for the planet and an education which gives everyone the opportunity to understand the issues, and be part of the solutions, from an early age. 2020 Education is also about creating better employment and career prospects. Young people who participate in this programme can learn the skills, behaviours and self confidence they need for higher education and the world of work. Across the UK – and around the world – there are schools and other groups running innovative projects which give young people practical experience of the big global issues and empower them to make a difference through local action. 2020 Education aims to identify these projects, link them with one another and support their growth.
Upton-by-Chester High School is delighted to have 3 student ambassadors in the current sixth form. Watch this space for information about forthcoming projects.
