SCOOP is a food cooperative run by EC members for the IHEID community. It was founded in February 2014 by a small group of volunteers and has since grown to selling a larger variety of products.

Through an online order form we sell organic products from farms in and around Geneva. We partner with small farmers and producers and deliver seasonal products so sometimes what we offer can differ. This promotes and educates students about sustainable and circular models of consumption.
You can expect legumes like chickpeas and lentils, nuts, seeds, dried fruit and more. We sell without profit, because we want to make local, organic, healthy food affordable to students.

The 170 Series Partnership with Perception Change Project at UNOG

Perception Change Project at the United Nations Office in Geneva’s mission is to make information accessible while highlighting the role of Geneva based organizations in the promotion of the SDGs. The purpose of their 170 brochures series is to develop a list of tangible and attainable actions that the majority of individuals can achieve, while at the same time educating people on current development concerns. 

The Environmental Committee at IHEID has partnered with PCP to produce a brochure for the organization’s 170 series. This particular project comprises of 10 actions for each of the 17 SDGs in relation to climate change. The group of EC students came up with an extensive list of environmentally sustainable actions to help mitigate risks of climate change. Moreover, the students shortlisted places in the world which are already seeing the effects of climate change and a list of youth who are standing up against the foreseen threat and taking action in order to inspire readers. 

After extensive reviewing, editing and graphic designing, the brochure was published in June 2020. It can be consulted on the UN Geneva website and is also available for download here.

We hope that this collaboration with PCP is the start of a long partnership with more projects to come.
