The Environment and ISY
The environment has always been a top priority for the ISY Community. In 2018 this was formalized when ‘Environmental Consciousness’ was made into one of our core themes.
From solar panels to composting and from High School student action campaigns to Elementary School gardening clubs, protecting our planet is part of who we are.
Service Learning at ISY
Recognizing the opportunity to contribute to change in both our own, as well as the larger community around us, ISY strives to be a leader in Service Learning as a means to engage as global citizens .
Service Learning is one of ISY’s Strategic Themes. From working with the Yangon Animal Shelter to our partnership with the United World Schools Project, Service Learning is part of everything we do at ISY.
