Great news for ISM! The school and Viola, our grade 7 student, were awarded with a Special Mention for ‘Inspiring Hope for Youth’ in the GEO SDG 2021 Awards.
Launched in 2019, the GEO SDG Awards, led by the EO4SDG initiative, recognize institutions, organizations, and countries that are applying Earth observations towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.
“Last year, in grade 6, for my exhibition I researched on how space technology, observation and innovation all help to achieve some of the SDG’s. I chose this subject because I was very interested on space having studied it in grade 5. At school, we also greatly discussed about the agenda 2030 and its importance to the world. I learnt that space innovation and technology can improve several of the SDG’s. After conducting my research I found out that the agenda 2030 is an agreement made by the united nations general assembly. In 2015 they set 17 sustainable development goals to be completed by 2030. They are global goals, all governments from the UN need to achieve them. During my exhibition work I had to interview some experts and I was very lucky to interview two female ones from NASA and ESA”
