Integrity - Service - Merit
The ISM learning community aims to educate and act for a sustainable future by embracing a whole school approach to sustainability education. A common understanding of sustainability is facilitated through the adoption of the Sustainability Compass, which emphasizes the need for balance between nature, economy, society and individual well-being. At ISM, faculty use systems thinking techniques in classes to assist students in recognizing interdependence and understanding feedback. Students are empowered with the necessary knowledge, skills, tools, methods, and opportunities to initiate positive change within our community on a co-curricular and on an institutional level. The school also has a sustainability fund which supports projects that promote sustainable development within the school or with ISM’s service partners.
In addition is the Sustainability Council, a group of like-minded individuals who are passionate about creating a sustainable community here at ISM. The Council facilitates its projects through the Sustainability Compass in line with ISM Education, and sponsors projects and developments in ISM in order to improve the school’s sustainability. Below are some of the projects Sustainability Council has run.
