(R)evolution at the Ecole d'Humanité

(R)evolution: Ecole Reunion June 25th - 26th 2016

The Ecole always was and still remains a revolutionary school. And: the Ecole evolves, existing in an ongoing process of development. This evolution is directed on the one hand by the Ecole’s deep roots in a proven legacy and on the other by the ever-changing challenges of its environment.

6 Day Hike

Following in Geheeb’s footsteps the Ecole reasserts the worth of walking in the wilderness with the 6 day hike. Again, groups went to Northern Italy and to many parts of Switzerland. The weather was mostly sunny and warm, but many groups were surprised to wake up to snow on the 4th morning.
