ist-sir-robert_swanOn 29 November 2012, students, staff and parents of the International School of Tianjin (IST) had the wonderful opportunity to spend 90 minutes with Sir Robert Swan O.B.E - the sustainable leader.

Sir Swan was the first person to walk to both poles and is a world-renowned leader in environmental conservation efforts, particularly with regard to the preservation of Antarctica, the world’s last great, and largely pristine, wilderness. His presentation was truly inspiring and the entire audience rated his presentation as one of the best they have ever had the pleasure to hear. Sir Swan also challenged the school to create at least one truly ‘green’ classroom and to send a teacher with him on a two-week expedition to Antarctica! His debate ended with a standing ovation and to fierce applause.

We urge you to take a visit to www.2041.com where you can find lots more about Sir Robert Swan’s life-long challenge and what you can do to help!
