Commitment to nature conservation: 59 schools in Thuringia are allowed to call themselves “Thuringian Sustainability School - Environmental School in Europe”

The schools were honored on Monday by Environment Minister Anja Siegesmund and Education Minister Helmut Holter in Erfurt for their commitment to sustainability and environmental and nature conservation. The initiative for social and economic projects is opened under the extended title “Thuringian Sustainability School”. The Thuringian program is thus more closely aligned with the priorities of the Thuringian sustainability policy. The Ruhla grammar school was one of four grammar schools in Thuringia that was awarded the "Gold" category. The jurors were impressed by our very good and sustainable networking with stakeholders from environmental protection and business. Mr Volkmar and two students received the award - on behalf of the entire school - in the Thuringian state parliament. Great performance from the whole school!
