West Nottingham Academy recently joined the International Schools Association (ISA) which is an educational collective that aims to solve the world’s educational challenges and connect students from around the globe with the purpose of peace. WNA has been offered the opportunity to host ISA’s Annual Youth Leadership Encounter which will take place over 2 years–virtually on Friday, October 22 and Saturday, October 23, 2021 and on WNA’s campus in October 2022. The conference will address the pressing need to sustain our world and advocate for climate justice for all.
In October of 2021, students from around the world will come together virtually to learn from guest speakers and launch their one-year projects dedicated to sustaining our earth. The following year in October 2022, students will reunite on West Nottingham’s campus to share their project learnings, enjoy guest speakers, panels, conferences, and trips to Washington D.C. and Maryland’s state capitol, Annapolis.
We sustain the Earth that sustains us. WNA’s focuses on building sustainability ethics in our students and community. Our sustainability ethics are defined by the 4 R’s: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Reciprocity.Take the Pledge
