Each of our eight schools is dedicated to the development of seven life-worthy, future-ready global competences: we develop lifelong learning, self-agency, the ability to interact with the world, with others and with resources so as to develop transdisciplinary, multiliterate thinking. Through this, we drive our mission, which is to educate students to be global citizens with the courage and capacity to create a just and joyful tomorrow together. Ecolint is built on strong humanitarian values and prides itself on its long history of pedagogical innovation, including the creation of the Model United Nations system and the International Baccalaureate. We have around 1250 employees representing more than 60 nationalities, united as one core of dynamic professionals, committed to our mission. The Campus des Nations is the newest campus of the Foundation of the International School of Geneva. Located in the heart of Geneva's international district, the campus has quickly established itself as a pioneering school of education committed to placing student learning at the center of all its activities. Campus des Nations is proud to be a global International Baccalaureate school. Our programs are based on the IB "learner profile," a set of ideals that inspire, motivate, and focus the work of the school and help students become more respectful, moral, cultured, and caring. Promoting these qualities is at the heart of everything we do.
