The American School of Dubai encourages sustainable habits and innovative change by spreading awareness and taking informed action to improve the present and future of our community.
Over the past few years sustainability has become an integral part of both learning and operations at the American School of Dubai where awareness around sustainability is becoming an increased priority. Sustainability, as defined by the United Nations, includes a recognition that the world has varied and interconnected dimensions and that a positive future is dependent on decisions that we make each and every day. It many ways, sustainability is about generating a critical consciousness regarding our behaviors as consumers, our choices as members of a community and our voice in supporting a positive future for our children. As such, we understand the necessity to support the development of students who contribute to a rapidly changing world.
The ASD Sustainability Statement was formulated by our Sustainability Action Team with the support of the HS Student Government Association, the MS Student Council and the ASD Cabinet, serves as as guide in moving forward in the years to come. The statement supports the Sustainable Development Goals (Global Goals), adopted by the United Nations in 2016, and focuses our efforts to educate our community, reduce our impact and engage our students in authentic learning experiences on campus and beyond.
