Sustainability Class Tours Recycling Plant

Art Basel Study TripWebster Geneva Campus summer class on Contemporary Moral Problems in Sustainability visited a recycling company in Geneva. Students learned about recycling rules and practices in Switzerland, discussed differences in their home countries, and toured the facility. At this private enterprise the students received more information about how small business owners in Switzerland may work with networks or associations of their competitors, where all owners support one another and work together in their sector. This Swiss small business mind-set of citizenship and a sense of responsibility for what is good for the overall society as well as one's own profit margin was impressive and unique for students to learn -- from a second small business owner in Geneva this summer.
