Sekolah Pelita Harapan (SPH) partnering with Learn with Leaders (LWL) is to host Harvard Undergraduate Clean Energy Group (HUCEG) Sustainability Changemakers Summit this coming 24-27 July in SPH Lippo Village Campus, as part of SPH Summer 2023. This 4-days offline summit, the first of its kind in Indonesia, will be led by HUCEG Leadership – Harvard Undergraduate mentors with specific emphasis on sustainability in an exciting interdisciplinary program.
Sustainability is an important discussion in today's world because it is essential for protecting our planet, promoting economic growth and social justice, and ensuring the health and well-being of present and future generations. Not only for environmental activists and the youth, but many businesses are also beginning to recognize the importance of sustainability as a key driver of long-term success. Businesses and governments with strong sustainability programs tend to excel because they are better equipped to manage risks, reduce costs, improve reputation, and attract top talent. By prioritizing sustainability, these organizations can create a more resilient and successful future.
In this HUCEG Sustainability Changemakers Summit, Grade 8 to 12 students will learn about sustainability and sustainable practices from Harvard mentors. The summit will cover topics such as sustainability as an interdisciplinary topic, sustainable innovation, and environmental leadership at different levels. Guided by Harvard mentors, students will explore sustainability from various disciplines, identify environmental issues and learn about various topics in the environmental community.
During the four-day program, students will learn a systematic, comprehensive approach to solving real-world sustainability problems through fun and interactive workshops.
The program also focuses on building skills such as pitching and presenting in a business startup/venture capitalist setting, as well as providing guidance on applying to the Ivy Leagues and building a lifelong network with Harvard mentors.
Harvard Undergraduate Clean Energy Group (HUCEG) is an entirely student-run organization working at the frontlines of climate action to accelerate the clean energy transition and environmental leadership. Harvard mentors will engage in discussions of climate change, collaborate with industries on innovative projects, and work towards making sustainability a more accessible topic in education, now for SPH students, and students from other schools in Indonesia.
This Sustainability Changemakers Summit is part of SPH Summer 2023, which offer a series of activities and classes for students aged 3-18 in June and July 2023.
