UpSchool is an Australian start-up education platform that provides free courses and resources for children and teachers. It is currently being used by over 1,000 teachers in 110 different countries, with around 30,000 children attending class each week in countries such as Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, Yemen and Ukraine.
We have partnered with UpSchool on their latest project, “It Starts with You” is a FREE online course developed to bring the magic of the Arctic to children all around the world. Explore the role this region plays in the lives of every human being on earth, and educating students on how everyday choices we make are putting pressure on the health of our planet. Children participating in the course will be encouraged to make a plan to change the way in which their community lives, to help contribute to positive environmental change.
We are proud to be partnering with UpSchool on this incredible project that will help to raise awareness of the pivotal importance of the Arctic to the health of our planet.
Enrichment, education, deepening connections to the remote regions we visit, and creating ambassadors for the protection of the environment is of huge importance to our company, and this partnership is one of many actions we are taking as part of a far-reaching sustainability in action plan.
