Through our artistic projects, we want to bring awareness to young people about the environmental issues of our society in order to build a more sustainable world that is respectful of the Earth and its inhabitants. Our programs are committed and accessible to all children regardless of their culture or social background. Our impact is at the local and international levels. We collaborate with schools, and hospitals as well as with NGOs and international organizations.
Educational projects with schools
Thanks to a privileged partnership with the Jane Goodall Institute and “Roots and Shoots” youth program, The Singing Tree offers schools committed educational projects around musical theatre on the themes such as biodiversity, human rights and peace building combining song, dance and theatre.
We also collaborate with innovative schools as part of the “Eco-Schools” network, which is the largest international program for environmental education and sustainable development. This program is recognized by UNESCO and UNEP.
Our current projects:
- “The Fabulous Adventures of Dr.Jane Goodall” – The Jane Goodall Institute, Zurich, Switzerland
- “The Starlighters” – Lemania School – Lausanne, Switzerland
- “Sounds of Music” – Mont-Pèlerin Institute – Lausanne, Switzerland
NGOs & International Organizations
We also collaborate with NGOs, children’s aid associations and international organizations (UNESCO, UN) to offer children from underprivileged backgrounds access to artistic education.
