Community Involvement

We promote intercultural understanding and respect as an essential part of twenty-first century life. IEGS promotes education and knowledge as a way of engaging with the world and the community, helping students to find the balance between striving for individual expression and group responsibility.

By accepting differences and showing generosity to those around us we create an atmosphere of collegiality and respect, preparing individuals to become responsible members of a democratic society.

Education at IEGS trains students as world citizens who understand and respect different cultures. We encourage students to actively participate in their local community as well as the global community by helping those less fortunate than themselves. The ability to see others and the awareness of global issues is woven into the entire curriculum at IEGS.

On the trip the students carried out field work in the form of surveys at various locations in the city, asking Londoners about their knowledge and habits regarding sustainable transportation, water use and more.
