CAISL and the Environment
Making "positive contributions to our diverse and ever-changing world"
It is in our Mission but also in our hearts.
Students, Staff and Administration are equally committed to reduce as much as possible the carbon footprint we leave behind. Browse this page to learn about measures, campaigns, clubs and programs we have at CAISL.
EcoLution is a student led and teacher supervised initiative whose aim is to raise awareness to environmental issues and encourage action, communication and collection of data, through the implementation of eco-friendly habits on the CAISL community.
This year, in addition to the High School Club, there is also a Middle School one and together they have been raising awareness to several issues - see some of them on the posters section.
The Ecolution, in collaboration with the the Parent Support Group, challenged the whole community to present upcycling projects. Now it is time to bid and raise money for AMI Ecoética
AMI Ecoética is a charity that focuses on reforesting burnt forest in Portugal. Find out more here.
Until the end of April.

The Middle School Ecolution Club continues to support the compost@home initiative and shares other projects they are working and planning to work in the near future.
Daily, one of the 10 alternating volunteers collects the coffee grounds that would otherwise go to the undifferentiated garbage, and takes them to a compost pile. This initiative has saved kilos of high quality fertilizer going to waste.
On January 21st Middle School had the virtual visit of Mr. Artur, a representative of Fruta Feia, an initiative focused on reducing food waste.
This year, the HS and the MS Ecolution Clubs joined efforts with the Parent Support Group (PSG) and created their version of a sustainable Holiday Tree.
At the end of November, MS and HS both had an Assembly to celebrate student success. At the end of both Assemblies, after hearing about individual success in sport and arts, we realized that there is a lot of achievement we didn’t know. On Thanksgiving, that became another reason to feel grateful.
The HS Ecolution club is a student led and teacher supervised initiative whose aim is to raise awareness to environmental issues and encourage action, foster communication and sustainable attitudes/choices, through implementation of eco-friendly habits on the CAISL community.
CAISL is a student-centered educational community in which we challenge ourselves and each other to do our best and to make positive contributions to our diverse and ever-changing world.
