“The board members have generously agreed to give their time to Globeducate on a voluntary basis and will meet with us as a group twice a year as well as visit our schools. They are excited by Globeducate’s work and are keen to lend their support to our mission to enable each student to shape the world.”
Globeducate CEO Luca Uva said the group, as well as the board, are “all excited about where this latest powerful union will take us”.
“This project has been important to us for a long time,” Uva said.
“Now, in this post-Covid-19 period, we find education is at the heart of recovery and we are delighted to be working with these five leading international figures in Educational leadership, policy, curriculum design, technology and sustainability.”
Globeducate aims to ensure that its 28,000 students develop skills and abilities beyond the purely academic, with a focus on tackling unprecedented social, economic and environmental challenges.
“Our teachers, counsellors and partners prepare this generation for jobs that have not yet been created, for technologies that have not yet been invented, and to solve problems that have not yet been anticipated,” it said.
