ISP Schools, as part of International Schools Partnership (ISP), has committed to leaving behind a better world for both current and future students.
Through our new ISP Futures Programme, we reflect on what we want the International Schools Partnership (ISP) and the schools and offices within our group, to be like in ten, twenty and fifty years’ time.
The ISP Futures programme It will focus on Education for Sustainable Development, to give the next generation all of the skills and knowledge necessary to handle the social and environmental changes that will occur in the near future.
What we are doing to achieve these commitments?
The ISP Forest – through our partnership with NGO Tree-Nation, in 2020/2021 we have committed to planting one tree per ISP student and staff member in accredited reforestation projects around the world. This amounts to over 55,000 trees in 10 planting sites around the world.
The Tree-Nation mission is to reforest the world. To fight against deforestation and to revert its effects on the world’s climate, to bring sustainable development to communities and preserve the biodiversity for all species (fauna and flora) whose existences are intrinsically bound to the forests.
ISP Change Makers – ISP Schools will be encouraged to organise activities with their students and wider communities around international environmental days: Earth Day on 22nd April 2021, Litter Less Day in May 2021 and World Environment Day on 5th June 2021.
ISP will provide a resource pack with a range of ideas and support, and schools will be able to decide what activities they choose to run in their schools. Participation in these days is optional, and schools can take part in just one or all of them. We also encourage ISP staff in our regional offices to support and organise activities around these international environmental days.
