VRG’s Year 2 “Think Global, Act Local” project is off and running.
On Monday, our Year 2 students had the pleasure of listening to a lecture by Marika Tedroff (VRG Alum 2013). Marika started up a project called ‘Stockholm Food Rescue‘ that aims to reduce food waste by helping restaurants and cafes donate leftover food. You can read more about her project in this article>>.
She is also a former VRG student who graduated in 2013. It was inspiring to hear her story of how a small idea can contribute to a better world. She had practical tips for our students: take small steps, make calls/send emails, ask “Why not?”, seek sponsorship, stay positive …
Now our Year 2 projects will put her advice to good use during their social entrepreneurship project!
