Sustainable Development at ISN
Integrating Sustainable Development into the curriculum at ISN is a fundamental aspect of who we are and our values.
In fact, it is so important to us that it is incorporated into our Vision: “to prepare today’s learners to confidently embrace challenges as adaptable, empathetic global citizens who will be active contributors for a more sustainable world”; and is part of the ‘I’ of the ISN Mission: “we INSPIRE our diverse community of learners to take a proactive role as responsible global citizens”
It is also integrated into our definition of Global Competence, crafted to reflect the depth and breadth of a concept at the heart of a 21st century education: Global competence is an on-going process to critically understand the connections between environmental, economic and social forces, to understand and appreciate the perspectives and worldviews of others, to engage in respectful, open interactions with people from different cultures in recognition of our shared humanity and guardianship of the planet, to carefully evaluate causes and possible solutions to local and global issues and to act ethically for collective well-being, peace and sustainable development.
So, how do we put this into practise at ISN Nice?
