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 some of their latest projects, ‘It Starts with You’ and ‘The Power of One’ two FREE online courses developed to bring the magic of the polar regions to children all around the world. The courses explore the role these regions play in the lives of every human being on earth and educate students on how everyday choices we make are putting pressure on the health of our planet. Children participating in the courses will gain a deeper understanding of the ocean’s significance and will learn how to make sustainable choices that benefit the ocean and the global community.
We are proud to be partnering with UpSchool on this incredible project that will help to raise awareness of the pivotal importance of the polar regions 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.
