How can a cultural day be sustainable?

Samantha Berk

The selection committee will want to see that your proposed CLP is sustainable and will have a lasting impact in your school and community, even after the project officially ends. Once again, look at the problem/need/issue that your project will address. If you are attempting to encourage more students to enroll in the Mandarin/Arabic program, how will the cultural day accomplish this? You plan your lessons starting with the end-goal in mind, and your CLP should be the same. Think about what you want to happen overall, and then plan your activities accordingly.
