SUSTAINABILITY

supported by the "Climate and Energy Fund" of the Luxembourgish Ministry of the Environment, Climate and Sustainable Development

At ANKAA, we will always look for ways to make our initiatives more environmentally-friendly, and work towards encouraging a sustainable future for both the planet and the people living on it.​

 

Sustainability in ANKAA is examined thoroughly at every level of the project.

From classes and workshops to kitchen and general facilities.

From staff and volunteers to visitors and students.

From what we buy to what we offer.
