The International School of Zug & Lucern (ISZL) – Switzerland

Center for Systems Awareness SITE

The International School of Zug and Luzern located in central Switzerland started working with the Compassionate Systems Framework with students and teachers, initially in the primary school with 80 grade four students and now across the primary school division. The school is now using the framework with teachers in the community, leadership teams and also a large range of primary school students.

The use of the compassionate system tools has produced profound improvements in the conceptual understanding of many subject areas including human migration, sustainability and trade.

In addition, the framework has provided the school with a pathway and a methodology to address our key goal of promoting intercultural understanding and international mindedness. More recently the use of the tools including the check-in and the systems iceberg have provided effective protocols to improve the discussions in teams and deepen inquiry around school developments.
