On School day of Sustainability children from elementary schools get started playfully with sustainability. By doing, seeing, smelling, hearing, tasting and feeling they learn what they can do themselves to contribute to the Global Goals. The school day was developed as a request of alderman Nicole Olland of the municipality of Rheden. Last year is was organized for the first time in this municipality; 15 elementary schools with 2,300 students participated.
The school day is unique for every municipality because of close cooperation with local businesses. In in 2016 in Rheden more than 40 companies were involved in the organization and partly responsible for the day.
