Beginning in August 2010, the Lyceum Alpinum Zuoz has formed a partnership with the global organization World Challenge.
World Challenge provides educational expeditions in the developing world which teach life skills and expand minds outside the classroom. The ethos focuses on the ideas of:
- Challenge: students face a series of mental and physical challenges, taking them outside their comfort zones and teaching them how to overcome adversity, cope with new environments and become more aware of both their strengths and weaknesses.
- Participation: students participate by working as a team, taking responsibility, setting and meeting objectives and learning to become confident decision-makers.
- Environment: students learn to become more environmentally aware by exploring diverse landscapes, finding out about other cultures or discovering more about their own. They will gain a broader global perspective and a greater respect for the world.
