Following the historic Rio Earth Summit in 1992, a lively debate was held at the Pregny campus of the Geneva International School. With the help Mr. David Batten, the outcome of that discussion led to the publication of the first Earth Focus magazine.
Since then, dozens of issues have been published and circulated worldwide to reach the very places being discussed in some of its articles fostering exchange and further discussion. Students at every level, whether primary, secondary or in higher education contributed content as well as regular input by a host of experts.
With sustainability as the over-arching theme, a variety of social, environmental and economic issues were covered. Stories that had hitherto been unheard of were featured to help with the process of raising awareness. Even the youngest contributors demonstrated unprecedented levels of maturity when tackling these issues.
