The “New Horizons: Objective Earth!” Day is a day dedicated to students from partner schools in the Toulouse Academy who are part of the Sustainable Development Pathway of the ISAE-SUPAERO Equal Opportunities Program. It takes place on Thursday, April 21 on the ISAE-SUPAERO campus

At the origin, a course

While in recent years the sensitivity of students to environmental issues has become significant, OSE ISAE-SUPAERO offers them to intervene in colleges and high schools to raise awareness of environmental issues and act at their level.

Thus, the objectives of the “Our Planet” program are to make young people aware of environmental issues, to develop the capacity for action and mobilization of schools, and to seek a multiplier effect through education that prepares future citizens to adopt responsible behaviors in accordance with the values of the Republic.

While the first part of the course took place from September to April by the animation of Fresco of the Climate in several establishments. The “New Horizons: Target Earth” day is the second part of the event.
