Reknown experts from from diverse fields and countries teach at YES, ensuring state-of-the-art learning
From “course” to “lab”: YES is reinvented as a hands-on training lab building skills and minds for a sustainable future. While maintaining the unique, holistic YES approach, YES strengthens its local impact through a broader organizational base and strong hosting partners like Amirkabir University of Technology Tehran (Iran) and LEAD University (Costa Rica).
The first YES course run by myclimate takes place in Naivasha, Kenya. It is the 40th YES course. "We’re proud to take over and continue to develop this great project," says Dominik Mösching, former YES director at myclimate. To date, more than 200 faculty members and experts have contributed to the delivery of YES; a growing number are YES alumni themselves.
Actis is integrated into the myclimate education department. From left to right Dr. Giatgen-Peder Fontana, myclimate foundation board president; Dr. Roger Baud, Actis; René Estermann, myclimate CEO. Dr. Baud is “happy that this project is staying in the YES family. With its competence and broad set of skills, myclimate will set new standards as a strong operator.”
YES goes America: The first YES course outside of Switzerland is realized in Costa Rica, together with Avina and INCAE Business School. ETH students develop a project to compensate the carbon emission of the event – the idea for myclimate is born! (Today, myclimate operates YES…the cycle is complete.)
