Because the cornerstones of environmental awareness are laid during childhood, we’re always glad to see schoolteachers addressing environmental and health issues in the classroom. We gladly provide schoolteachers with free instructional materials, children’s books and games.

We have also drawn up guidelines concerning sustainable mobility and indoor air quality and other matters, with the goal of keeping pupils and their teachers healthy.
