IC has been granted the certificate for institutions by the Global Schools Program which encourages primary and secondary schools to actively learn about, engage with, and take action on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
IC recognizes the enormous social, economic, and environmental challenges facing the world. It also recognizes that future development must take place in a way that is socially, economically, and environmentally sustainable and that the Sustainable Development Goals establish an agenda for the achievement of sustainable development by 2030.
The goal of IC within the frame of sustainable development is to provide educational opportunities for its students to acquire the knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development and to contribute to the achievement of SDGs through ensuring that major programs are environmentally sustainable and socially inclusive.
IC affirms the urgent need to further strengthen and scale up Education for Sustainable Development in schools and emphasizes the important role that youth can play in achieving a sustainable future by virtue of their creativity, enthusiasm and optimism and stresses the vitally important role that schools can play in achieving a sustainable future through teaching and operations.
