Dubai: Esol Education, the world’s largest operator of American international schools, collaborated with world-renowned progressive educator and green innovator Stephen Ritz to explore sustainability projects within existing and future schools in Dubai. This initiative helps Esol Education align with UAE Vision 2021 which aims to position cities of the UAE as the most sustainable cities of the world and will look towards developing a fully sustainable future school concept for the city.

Stephen Ritz, globally acclaimed green educator from New York, enthralled and inspired students by delivering several motivational addresses to students of all ages at Esol Education’s Universal American School (UAS) in Dubai. He met with students from Elementary to High School, as well as the UAS Green Team. Students showed their enthusiasm with standing ovations to his rousing messages of “People Power” and “Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop,” urging students to use their education to transform the world and solve the challenges our planet is facing today.

Stephen was visiting Esol Education’s Dubai and Cairo campuses to facilitate sustainability initiatives within its schools.
