Dragons can be found far and wide, with many going on to transform the world for the better, contributing positive change and innovation. We are bold in our lookout, developing curious minds, a sense of purpose, quiet confidence and determination.

The lifelong love of learning which we instil in our children is still evident in the ODs we see today, and we’re proud to lead thought provoking discussions on important topics of the day within our wider community. Each year the Dragon invites eminent members of our community to lead discussions and ask important questions about key topics affecting today’s society.

Arduus ad Solem, Reach for the Sun, is an opportunity for our whole community to join in these discussions and debates around various themes from Sustainability to Artificial Intelligence through to Education. These sessions encourage balanced conversations around social, economic and political issues, with the aim of providing insight and understanding in what we can do to make a positive impact to the world around us.

Arduus ad Solem 2021 -2022 | Climate Change

With the UK is hosting COP26, it seems particularly fitting that our chosen topic for this year will be Climate Change. The first session in the series Climate Change: How can Dragons help solve it? is taking place on Thursday, 25th November at 6.30 pm via Zoom Webinar.

The event will introduce key environmental issues and welcome experts in renewable energy, energy transition and space technology to discuss the complexities around climate change, and the ways we can achieve a more sustainable society.
