Brannel School has successfully drawn down funding from the British Council to fund an exchange programme with the USA as part of its environmental learning offer. Six Year 10 students have been selected to represent Brannel.
KED inspired schools hold similar beliefs and practices around the pedagogy of civic engagement. As part of the KED network, Brannel has partnered with the Woodstock Day School to arrange the exchange. Woodstock is a progressive independent school set on a 40-acre campus in the Catskill Mountains of New York State.
The aim of the exchange is to build global relationships for young people that contribute to a deeper appreciation of cultural diversity and a broadening of human experience. Brannel students will have the opportunity to attend the Youth Empowerment Sustainability Summit in February 2020 that Woodstock Day School is sponsoring with the Ashokan Center. This will enable them to develop a global perspective on climate change and youth empowerment.
