We at the Student Ambassador Program have made the decision to integrate into Ki Futures. This shift in programming will allow international students in all time zones to participate as it suits them, as informational orientations will be recorded and will be accessible upon registration. Students will also have the availability of a student advisor, who they can work with one-on-one, and will also be able to request sessions with some of the Ki Coaches, who work directly with professionals in the Ki Futures program.
This change will also give students more opportunities to work with professionals and network with like-minded peers through scheduled online trainings and resources, both of which are available through the Ki Port login.
For more information on this program, please visit https://www.kiculture.org/ki-futures/.
We are very excited to continue this sustainability journey with students around the world, and hope that you will make this transition with us.
If you have any questions about this change, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHAT IS SAP AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
Our Student Ambassador Program (SAP) puts sustainable practice in the hands of students to incorporate and encourage ecological thinking from the training level. For the cultural sector, getting involved with sustainability is a way to take responsibility in a world where commitment and concrete action towards facing climate challenges are becoming increasingly urgent. The SAP helps conservation and restoration students (individuals or teams) to initiate sustainable practices within their school. In doing so, it creates awareness of the environmental impact of our profession and instills sustainable habits in conservators at the student level that will carry over into the professional sector.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Each institution appoints a Student Ambassador, which can be a single individual or a group of students. The Student Ambassador is responsible for identifying problem areas in and around the workspace as well as promoting awareness of sustainable methods and initiatives. The program is outlined in the SAP Handbook.
It follows three focus points:
- Materials and Waste
The third volume of the SAP Handbook, released for the 2020-2021 academic year, focuses on water management of workplaces and student habits. The step-by-step guide is coupled with a self-assessment form filled in at the start and again at the end of the year, which facilitates the identification of problem areas and enable students to track their improvements.
This program is designed to showcase successes and share best practice by connecting students from around the globe via SiC’s social media platform. You can follow us on Instagram @siconserve_sap.

SiC will also offer an online meetings for helping Student Ambassadors while they initiate the sustainable transition within their school.
