Resources in the times of COVID

 

As confinement becomes generalised across the globe, with no definite idea of how long it will last, the Ecolint Alumni Office has decided to share a few resources with you.

Ecolint has always been a unique community; whether we are students, parents, teachers, alumni, just graduated or retired, Swiss, Indian, American or Ghanaian, we share that special Esprit Ecolint. May some of the links below inform, educate, distract, or amuse you; and we hope they remind you of your years at school!
