IMPACT Compass

The IMPACT Compass

At IMPACT, we focus on the well-rounded development of young people by emphasizing the compass points of environment, economics, society, and health. These are indeed crucial aspects that significantly impact the future of humankind. Incorporating these elements into an education system or framework can help prepare students to navigate the complex challenges of the modern world. Here's a bit more detail on each of these compass points:

  1. Environment: encompasses everything around us, including the natural world and ecosystems. Teaching students about environmental sustainability, climate change, conservation, and the importance of responsible resource management can help them understand their role in preserving the planet for future generations.

  2. Economics: Economic literacy is vital for understanding how societies function. Students should learn about supply and demand, budgeting, investing, and the global economy. Understanding economics can empower students to make informed decisions about their personal finances and contribute to the economic well-being of their communities.

  3. Society: Includes the interactions, norms, and values shaping our communities. Teaching students about cultural diversity, inclusivity, social justice, and ethical decision-making can help them become responsible and engaged citizens who contribute positively to their local and global communities.

  4. Health: Health and well-being are essential for leading fulfilling lives. Students should learn about physical and mental health, nutrition, exercise, and the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Promoting health education can empower students to make informed choices that lead to a better quality of life.

Integrating these compass points into education can be done through a multidisciplinary approach, where various subjects and activities are organized around these themes. For example:

  • Curriculum Integration: Develop lessons and projects that span multiple subjects and incorporate the compass points. For instance, studying the environmental impact of different economic activities or examining the social determinants of health.

  • Experiential Learning: Provide opportunities for students to engage in hands-on experiences related to the compass points. This could involve field trips to natural habitats, community service projects, or simulations of economic decision-making.

  • Critical Thinking: Encourage students to think critically about the intersections between these compass points. How do economic decisions affect the environment? What societal factors influence health outcomes?

  • Guest Speakers and Experts: Invite professionals and experts from various fields related to the compass points to share their insights and experiences with students.

  • Project-Based Learning: Assign projects that require students to tackle real-world issues related to the compass points. This approach promotes problem-solving skills and practical application of knowledge.


Focusing on the compass points, you're helping to ensure that students are prepared to face future challenges with a well-rounded and holistic perspective. This approach can empower them to make informed decisions, contribute positively to society, and work towards a sustainable and equitable future.
