E3D is a label granted to French schools that have adopted a sustainable development approach. Since 2020, the E3D Committee has worked alongside EFIT to raise awareness and take action to reduce our school community’s environmental impact. Eco-friendly consumption, sustainable development, plastic pollution, and climate change are topics explored in studies and projects implemented from nursery school to the final year of Sixth Form.
Eco-delegates have also been working with EFIT since 2020, particularly to help mobilise the entire school community around environmental causes.
The EFE3D label is granted to French international schools committed to sustainable development. In summer 2021, EFIT obtained the EFE3D label level 2, called “Approfondissement”, meaning “in-depth understanding”. This renewed the Committee’s commitment to take further action and adopt other perspectives, especially with regard to the 17 sustainable development objectives identified by the United Nations in 2020. These objectives act as a guide to build a better, more sustainable future for all by 2030. They address global challenges, with a particular focus on poverty, inequality, the climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, peace and justice.
PUPIL ECO-DELEGATES AND E3D COMMITTEE MEMBERS
Pupil eco-delegates launch monthly challenges to inspire everyone to change our habits with small, yet impactful actions. They are supported by a full E3D committee made up of staff (teachers and non-teachers), students and parents, working in specialised sub-committees to implement three of the UN’s sustainable development goals (Terrestrial Biodiversity, Marine Biodiversity and Solidarity) at the school wherever possible.
