A new look for echo

The Autumn 2015 issue of echo, our biannual magazine, has just been published. Printed copies have been winging their way to alumni around the world and should be arriving in the days ahead. If you can't wait until then, you can browse the electronic version (after first signing in to your user account ).

The magazine has been given a fresh new look and is packed with interesting articles. The cover shows a photograph of "Rebirth", a new sculpture in the grounds of Geneva's Palais des Nations, which was unveiled during an open day to mark the UN's 70th anniversary. Ecolint had the honour of nominating 193 students to perform the task of unveiling the stones that represent each member nation.

Alumni might particularly enjoy the joint interview with Lakshmi Sundaram (LGB '97) and Michael Mathres (La Chât '93), who each returned to their respective campus as guest speakers for the 2015 graduations. It's a wide-ranging interview that touches on the speeches themselves, the career path each has followed, and their memories of their school days. A quote from Lakshmi:

"One of the things I mentioned in my speech is, because you grew up in this funny context where you get cultural influences from all over but only snippets of them, you end up finding when you leave that you connect so much better with other people who have had the same nomadic influences."

Other alumni-focused features include profiles of four alumni that are carving out careers in the music industry and an encounter with two current Ecolint teachers who attended the school themselves. There's also a chance to catch up with three recent retirees: Mr Phillips, Mrs de Smet and Mr Ackermann.

Other articles in this issue include:

  • an Ecolint-led teacher training programme in Zambia
  • the Foundation-wide response to the earthquakes in Nepal earlier this year
  • our new Director of Education introduces herself and her role
  • a report on our innovative Institute of Learning and Teaching
  • plans for a new STEM Centre at LGB (following last year's Mission to Mars)
  • a profile of Ludwik Rajchman, one of Ecolint's inspirational founders
