Draussen Schule

Out of school and into society!

Hannah Berner, Isabelle Simmen, Schule Ilgen, Zürich, Staatsarchiv (CH)

In "Draussen Schule," (Outdoor School) students leave the classroom and venture out into the world. To a place that plays an important role in our democratic coexistence. For this edition, they visited the State Archives of the Canton of Zurich, where they spent one day a week for three months.

What function does this place serve for democracy? What is archived here? Who decides that? These and other questions were explored by the students with the employees of the State Archives. Now they provide insights into their investigations.
