The UN Environmental Challenge
For Schools (Years 10-12) and Tertiary Students | Virtual or In-Person | Worldwide
Immerse in our challenge-based bootcamp inspired by The Ocean Cleanup project, where students enhance their intercultural communication skills for effective collaborative cross-cultural teamwork.
This 3-hour bootcamp features a team challenge for students from around the globe to learn and apply cultural competency skills for collaborating in cross-cultural teams.
To crack the challenge, participants need to respectfully reach consensus with their teammates, and harnesses a range of international perspectives.
This live-facilitated program is an immersive experience that will not only deepen students’ understanding of how their actions are perceived by people from different cultures but also fosters a sense of global citizenship and cultural self-awareness.
