Upper School Projects
Guest speakers and workshops
Project Cost: CHF 20,000
Guest speakers will inspire our Upper School students with possibilities for future fields of study and career opportunities. (Specific guest speakers to be determined).
Fund for student-led SDG projects
Project Cost: CHF 5,000
This "venture fund" will provide support for students who are passionate about pursuing their own Sustainability projects outside of the classroom. The fund may allow the purchase of special equipment, software or learning tools to make these student-led projects possible. Criteria for successful grants will be created by faculty in consultation with students.
Living Classroom and Citizen Science programs
Project Cost: CHF 6,000
Learning how nature sustains life and developing "eco-literacy" is essential to educating our students for sustainability. By creating living ecosystems as classrooms, our students don't just learn about nature but will have opportunities to learn from nature. For example, Upper School students will work with experts to plan a vertical garden to be implemented next school year.
Teachers and students will also have opportunities to engage in Citizen Science Projects that produce excellent science while at the same time providing quality open data to help citizens, communities and governments assess and monitor the U.N. SDGs, design and create living classrooms, and participate in local service learning.
