Being exposed to nature and preservation challenges creates the context in which our school operates regarding sustainability. We believe this is an essential piece in teaching for the future. Our sustainability and environmental education involves our students and the entire community in events, special classes and outdoor activities constantly looking for better ways to save energy, reduce waste and make our campus greener.

The Common Ground Collaborative is a project that assembled a team of world-class writers and designers to deconstruct the traditional education system and redesign it. With the International School of Curitiba and other 20 international schools around the world, the CGC has developed a functional Learning Ecosystem by Defining, Designing, Demonstrating and Delivering Learning in a visible manner.
