A lot of studies revealed that students face a lot of pressure nowadays. It is argued that schools should provide a safe and enjoyable atmosphere to the students for them to learn 「whole person development」.
Against this background, JCI Island has organised the 3rd new large project this year, Edutainment Fest 2017 in the area of United Nations Affairs to, amongst others, provide a platform to recognise the edutainment practitioners with the aim of promoting a healthy and balanced lifestyle to the students.
「Edutainment」 is the term containing the elements of education and entertainment. This project is specifically targeted to SDG no.4, Quality Education. It echoes with OECD Well-Being 2030.
