Following the success of last year’s sustainable living essay writing competition, two of the winning students took the initiative to travel and attend the week long exhibition in Oxford, England organized by the Living Rainforest Trust and held at the beginning of July. The prize winners from over 40 countries, including Kristin Kharrat and Yasmine Boury from RBE presented their views on incorporating sustainability within education at the Oxford Union, the world's most prestigious debating society, promoting debate and discussion in Oxford University and across the globe. Following the presentation day, the students were invited to go on focused tours around Oxford and London highlighting innovative sustainable practices in schools and cities. The program included a visit to a sustainable school (Sandhills) as well as the Crystal building in East London, currently the world’s most sustainable building.  “This whole experience was amazing for me and I hope even more people contribute from IC to help make a difference …. “Said Kristin who would like to see this IC spirit and global contribution continue in future years.
