Our promise to help reduce the impact we make on the planet
At International Summer School for Teens, we promise to be responsible - we're dedicated to finding ways to do things better for our people and our planet. Alongside our commitment to become Carbon Net-Zero and to further reduce our impact on the environment, we've partnered with environmental organisation Ecologi. With that in mind, from 26th January 2022, we will be planting a tree into our ISSFT forest with every summer school application.
The ISSFT Forest is a virtual representation of all the actual trees that are planted as part of our efforts - take a look at it on Ecologi's website below:
Each tree in the forest is responsibly planted with Eden Reforestation, which ensures their reforestation projects have a positive human impact and a positive environmental impact. They hire and train local people to plant new trees, they plant native species, and their seedling survival rate is an impressive 80%. Through this partnership, we'll be helping to reduce carbon pollution, creating employment for local families, and restoring wildlife habitats - all helping us accelerate to a more sustainable future.
