At a time of great ecological urgency, our school project, the Projet d’établissement scolaire transforLmL, would like to contribute over the next three years to the achievement of the goals set by the United Nations for sustainable development and to promote science.
We want to induce a change of heart from “Something has to change!” to “I’ll change something!” in our school community.
Especially now that young people are more committed than ever to climate issues, we would like to build on the enthusiasm of our youth to establish a sustainable lifestyle in our school.
Based on the three pillars of sustainability – ecology, economy and social issues – we would like to teach our students on one hand how to act ecologically (not to consume more resources than can be generated in the same period of time) and how to handle natural resources with care, and on the other hand we would like to teach them the basic economic idea (not maximum profit, but orientation towards a long-term existence of the company) as well as the social component of the responsibility of our own actions towards our fellow men.
We would like to accompany the students in their development to become critical, open, independent, nature and science enthusiasts.
Last but not least, we would like to prepare the school community for the new school building on Kirchberg, which will be constructed according to the principles of the circular economy (energy-neutral and C02-neutral).
We offer some workshops (others will be added) to create environmental awareness and promote sustainable action and learning:
THE REPAIR SHOP
The Students-Repair Shop aims to enable students to deal with the topic of waste avoidance and to actively tackle it.
To this end, defective old/unused equipment is repaired and passed on to others in order to avoid waste production.
The repairs carried out are free of charge. Spare parts, however, must be paid for.
Furthermore, defective devices can be donated by all interested parties to support this idea. The proceeds from the sale of these repaired donated devices will be donated to a charitable organization.
THE WORKSHOP BUSY BEE
A ‘bee research station’ has been established on the school grounds of the LML.
Students who are interested in (natural) scientific and environmental problems can learn methods of beekeeping practice, learn how to care for a bee colony over the year and carry out residue analyses independently at the Luxembourg Institute of Science (LIST).
Students thus learn to investigate questions in a scientific way by acquiring expertise and technical knowledge.
Since the 2019/2020 school year, a digital platform, focused on the sharing economy, has been created by the students of the GCG section. Students manage this site and can thus apply the skills they have acquired in class, while developing their skills in group work and digitalization.
The site is used by the LML school community and promotes new consumption patterns.
Share n’care allows students and school staff to share the use and consumption of products, equipment and services.
