Education for Sustainable Development
Eco School International
The VIS community is committed to creating awareness of the need for a sustainable environment and to leave a green print on our planet. Being an Eco School International helps our students to understand the important aspects of sustainability on a global scale, making them global citizens and future ambassadors that share their commitment towards a truly sustainable world. The VIS is proudly the first Eco School International in Austria and through their “Building Eco Bridges” project wants to invite other schools to join efforts towards a sustainable planet.
At VIS, there is a firm commitment to provide students with the learning experiences necessary to develop their understanding for sustainability. The aim is that all students apply this understanding in decisions that they make in their everyday lives. They are empowered to take action, seek solutions and become aware that they can make a difference, responding to the actions needed to sustain the planet. Teachers facilitate this learning through the integration of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the VIS Curricula.
VIS is in the process to apply for the Austrian Green Label (Umweltzeichen).

Pledge created by our VIS Green Team Students
"It is evident that VIS is truly dedicated to sustainability and the Eco-School's programme itself (and...) undoubtedly deserves the Green Flag Award. They have invested the time, effort, and dedication needed to run the Eco-Schools programme successfully."
