Earth Day

PORG International School Earth Day 2022

Friday 22 April, 2022.

Earth Day is an international day aimed at focusing our attention on our planet and how we are treating it. 

We do work on sustainability and the circular economy in geography but Earth Day is when we bring those ideas together with what we have learned from School In Nature and our trips to the Great Outdoors for science.

We will be looking at a range of ideas aimed at each class level, from reducing and recycling our waste to how emerging technologies are using our understanding of the ecosystem to reduce our impact on it.

As the famous astronomer Carl Sagan pointed out, 'The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment the Earth is where we make our stand'.
