How did you start your #UWCDay2021? A few of our families hiked in the lush Phuket forests in celebration of nature, peace and a sustainable future for many on campus it was a day of action, community, fun and thought.
UWC Day is the annual global celebration of the UWC mission and values, which takes place on the 21st of September every year, to coincide with the United Nations World Peace Day. A strong commitment was shown from all in our UWC Thailand community through a myriad of fun, service-based, engaging and challenging activities designed to Reimagine Tomorrow.
The UWC Day on-campus activities for our Phuket Schools Sandbox and Boarding students varied from life bag packing, debates on social issues, cooking and baking challenges, lip-sync battles, mangrove potting, a trashion show and a peace march. Those at home reimagined tomorrow by exploring the Phuket outdoors, hiking, organizing beach cleanups, collecting mangrove pods, rock climbing and discussing how are can reuse and recycle our waste.
We have seen our community demonstrate our commitment to our mission – “UWC makes education a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future” as well as being inspired to make positive changes in our lives by considering what tomorrow looks like if we are united for peace and a sustainable future.
