The goal of this team is raise awareness on sustainability and to promote careers in Science and Engineering in Swiss secondary schools.

How it works?

The team contracted with the Little Prince Foundation, whose purpose is to improve youth’s daily lives and prepare them for the future.

The workshop, which takes about 45 minutes, is an interactive introduction to the Doughnut Theory, planet boundaries, the IPCC, LCAs, and possible solutions to tackle environmental challenges. The class is done in French at your school. The pupils’ smartphone is used throughout the workshop as an example to guide them through these sustainability-oriented concepts and tools.

The workshop is then followed by a discussion with the representative of a start-up or NGO active in sustainability projects, to see how previously explained concepts are applied in practice.
