This year's theme - BE THE CHANGE- connects to the mission of the IB perfectly and our continual work to live the Learner Profile.
"The aim all IB programs is to develop internationally- minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world." -ibo.org
The path to international- mindedness is the development of the attributes of the Learner Profile.
