Today’s children are tomorrow’s leaders. That is why we look to the younger generation: A four-year educational program sensitizes schools to climate-relevant issues and anchors sustainability in daily school life, in lessons and in the infrastructure over the long term.
Our experience-oriented and practical educational approach promotes a long-term change in behavior among the students. In class, on Action Days, during school visits or excursions, they can actively participate, gather their own experiences and exchange ideas with experts in the field. Climate School offers a platform for action and explores the following key topics in greater depth:
– Energy & Mobility
– Biodiversity & Nutrition
– Resources & Waste
We award Swiss schools that are particularly committed to climate protection. After completing the educational program and fulfilling a catalog of criteria, the schools receive the Climate School Label.
Energy School is a designation awarded by the Energiestadt Association for schools that are focusing on the topic of energy in depth. The aim is to reduce the school’s energy consumption, increase the proportion of renewable energy and promote the conscious use of energy and mobility.Energy and Climate Schools recognize each other’s achievements. You can find out more about the benefits for schools here.
The program launches with a campaign and related crowdfunding. Participating schools collect donations in their communities to implement school projects for climate protection. Parents, the community, local businesses and other groups fill the school’s climate fund, supporting the shared sustainable vision. The implementation status and program accomplishments are relayed to the public. The «Every Cell Counts» and «Every School Counts» campaigns have an impact beyond school boundaries.
Our backpack is stocked full of opportunities to integrate climate protection and sustainability into daily school life in exciting ways. The educational catalog contains offers and learning materials for the classroom, excursion ideas, films, project weeks, school visits and much more. The didactic prinicples are linked to curriculum 21 and help teachers to integrate Education for Sustainable Development (BNE) in regular lessons.Education catalog
