Climate protection starts with yourself

The topics of mindfulness and modesty with regard to dealing with waste and one's own consumption behaviour are fundamental focal points that serve climate protection. At the same time, they also concern economic aspects, for example when it comes to the consumption of resources such as raw materials and energy.Therefore, the school family has continued to reflect on its consumer behaviour and paid particular attention to avoiding waste.

The students jointly determined and developed the main topics and contents of the two projects on "sustainable consumption" in the context of values education and on the school's own topic "carbon dioxide in our living environment".

In the current school year, the students of our new training course to become a pedagogical specialist for primary school childcare are participating for the first time in the application process for the Environmental School in Europe and International Sustainability School 2022 with the topic "Biological Diversity in our School Environment".

Gender equality is one of the principles of our organisation. In this respect, linguistic equality is of essential importance. To ensure the non-discriminatory use of language use, we use – wherever possible – personal designations in texts that include all genders and gender identities. Accidental deviations do not imply any intention to discriminate.
