Teams from seven Globeducate schools in France, Italy, Spain and Portugal have made it through to the global final of the WWF´s Wild Wisdom Quiz Live Challengeon the 2ndDecember, all securing positions in the top five per cent from their national leader boards.
The quiz, a concept designed by WWF-India, went online for the first time in its 13-year history this year with a first round in November. Seven Globeducate schools competed with more than 2000 school teams in 50 countries and each now enters two students, aged 13 to 14, to progress to the final, taking place at 2pm GMT for the greatly anticipated one-hour event.
The top three schools will win grand prizes including a virtual safari experience based in South Africa and all participants will come away with a completion certificate. The top 10 individual performers will also win a prize.
Students earn points for interacting with live content, completing badges, testing themselves, and participating in live quizzes both in their class and at home. Congratulations to: Agora Portals International School and Granada College, Spain; Nobel Algarve British International School in Portugal; Southlands British International School and RIS Rome in Italy; and ISN Nice and Cours Hattemer in France.
Oanh Crouch, Globeducate Education Director, said: "Further evidence that our schools' involvement with Climate Action and SDGs is having impact on our students. With seven of our Globeducate schools representing France, Italy, Portugal and Spain in the Wild Wisdom Quiz Live International Finals, it is testament to our commitment to environmental initiatives. Congratulations to all the students, teachers and schools on making this happen. All of Globeducate will be cheering you on."
Matt Larsen-Daw, WWF-UK´s Education Manager, said: "Globeducate schools have been enthusiastic participants in this global challenge, with a number of shortlisted schools making it into the final! As ever, we are always delighted to see students from these schools so actively involved in sustainability education activities and, having shared their promise leaves and film at COP26, it is very clear that there is genuine passion and motivation in Globeducate students to get clued-up on important issues for the future of the planet and civilisation. We wish all of the students taking part in the final the very best of luck."
