For more than 40 years, Mount Madonna has maintained a commitment of fostering global citizenship by bringing our students to understand different cultures and values. Recognizing that global citizenship encompasses a deep respect for the environment, we looked to the framework of the United Nations (UN) 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to guide us in developing our event plans. The SDGs are an urgent global call to action by the UN who “recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.”
For the 16th annual Summit for the Planet, everyone is welcome to check out the wildlife and family- friendly activities on Saturday, April 23 from 9:00am to 1:30pm at Mount Madonna School. This FREE public event begins with a 5K family hike through the redwoods, and features an eco-carnival, pony rides, face painting, live wildlife and reptile area, a “trash fashion” show, model solar car races, activities, music and tasty food.
Hike registration begins at 9:00am; the hike starts at 10:00am, with music and the eco-carnival starting at 11:00am. The event concludes at 1:30pm.
Fundraising kicks off March 15!
