Explanation of the logo design
The branching tree design of this logo represents humanity with a common root and trunk. The diverging branches reflect differences between groups of people due to their unique cultures and histories. The coloured spheres represent meeting places, like schools, where people from different cultures can learn from each other and contribute to their collective wellbeing. The green background represents fertile settings in which learning and growth are nurtured.
