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.

2018 Stockholm Schools Debating Championships in Lund

The IEGS Debate Society participated in the 2018 Stockholm Schools Debating Championships in Lund on November 17th, 18th, and 19th. After taking Best Novice Team two years in a row in 2016 and 2017, they set their sights on further improving their skills and performance. The school sent one very hardworking team of five students: Andreas Backman, captain, Daniela Tupan, co-captain, Akshat Deshpande, Dylan Bradford, and a brand new competitor this year, Didrik Bratt. 

EYP

We spent a week with European youth just like us, debating important issues that affect the EU and us everyday. Over the course of a week, we learned how to draft legislation, reach consensus on difficult issues, how to debate, how to speak in public and how to understand the other side of an argument despite feeling very strongly for your side.

RESPECT Project

The second-year aesthetics students are doing an exciting new art project! Their work is to aesthetically express their reflections on anti sexual violence and respect.

Come together IEGS!

I enjoy my walk into school each morning. It is the best time of day for me to collect my thoughts and breathe in the fresh air. As a treat, when I get closer to the school, I set my eyes on the colorful and ever changing window displays of Gunnarsons Specialkonditori and Skrapan boutique in Södermalm. Delicious breads, pastries and cakes of the season are promoted at this timeless konditori, while the other has a very fashion forward window display that subtlety integrates local and global awareness on events or issues.
