Throughout the 2016-17 school year, Ranney School (Tinton Falls, NJ) students will be working on special projects to support Global Peace & Justice, which is #16 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As a follow-on program to last year’s SDG partnership with the UN and Monmouth University, the History and Art Departments will be working together to research, craft, and present to the community a variety of projects that raise awareness of key global challenges.
Projects will include photography, artwork, and campus exhibitions that demonstrate peace and justice in nonverbal ways, as well as visual and verbal presentations. In the first quarter, art students are working with the Global Citizens student group to create presentations, photography, and art installations that raise awareness about the global challenges associated with the education of girls. The same group will focus on human rights in the second quarter.
