SOS International empowers networks and organizations working on sustainability in and beyond education. We connect, strengthen and scale student-led approaches for sustainability and social justice – so together we can go further, faster.
SOS International helps members deliver sustainability programs and campaigns specifically designed for educational institutions. Built on a decade of experience, our members’ programs are currently run in several countries around the globe.
A Green Office is a student-led sustainability office that informs, connects and supports students and staff to act on sustainability. Green Offices take a whole-institution approach towards sustainability, promoting education for sustainable development, sustainability governance and green campus projects. The Green Office model was awarded the UNESCO-Japan Prize on Education for Sustainable Development in 2015. Want to know more? Read all about it on the website.
