news letter
Lyceum Schravenlant C2C pilotproject

Both the school and the municipality have very high ambitions with regard to sustainability, within which the Cradle to Cradle principle serves as an inspiration. All kinds of ways are being considered for making the school as sustainable as possible in its entirety. The concept of a long life span is the starting point for this, with the focus on the total building and period of use, in order to make sustainable solutions feasible.

One of the initiatives I really was surprised of was Lyceum Schravenlant. I fully support the collective ambition of teachers and students, management of the school and municipality to make this a new pilot project for a Cradle to Cradle® school. The ambition for this school to create a healthy, energy positive building makes it a real showcase for students and other parties to learn about the impact we have on the environment and our children. Prof. Dr. Michael Braungart - founder C2C
