OIS students work towards UN SDG – Sustainable Cities and Communities

In November of 2021, Oasis students took part in the “Service Starts Here” challenge. During this one-month event, students were tasked with finding sustainable solutions to issues that impacted their school community. They learned how to collect data, seek stakeholder input, evaluate ideas, and lead presentations.

Ninth graders focused on the school’s resource sustainability. After meeting with the finance department and facilities team, they identified two key areas in which simple solutions would lead to improved resource management: air conditioning use and paper waste. They presented their ideas to school leadership and advocated for change.
