In 2015 UWC Cayman Islands launched its local short course 'Toward a Sustainable Future' which was held in August 2015 and 2017. The next short course is expected in Summer 2019.
Toward a Sustainable Future aims to educate, equip and empower participants to make positive changes in their personal lives, homes and communities by exploring various aspects of sustainability, with a particular focus on the natural environment. As participants learn more about topics such as the marine environment, food security and energy, local experts will provide both local and global perspectives on the issues as well as concrete examples of what young people can do today to have a positive impact. Activities and field trips will provide opportunities for hands-on learning and unique experiences.
To apply to be a participant, students must be resident in the Cayman Islands, aged 14-16 at the time of the course, and passionate about sustainability and making a positive difference in their communities.
This programme is possible through our generous sponsors. Companies and individuals are encouraged to email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, including how to apply to be a participant and the various sponsorship opportunities and benefits.
A wide variety of UWC short programmes are hosted each summer by some of the 156 national committees and 17 colleges that form part of the movement. Focusing on specific UWC values such as leadership, international understanding and sustainability, these initiatives seek to expose more young people to the common mission and make a positive difference throughout the world.
