SDG 4 – Quality education
SDG4 seeks to secure all the necessary education about sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence and appreciation of cultural diversity. Education facilities should be upgraded and the supply of qualified teachers should be expanded.
What we’re doing
Being green at heart is vital. Everything else can be learned. Each and every person has a unique, untapped potential. The trick is recognizing and fostering it. That’s why our philosophy is: Strengthen your strengths to embody and use your talents to the best of your abilities. Everyone who applies to join our team brings with them a host of different skills. Some may have extensive professional experiences, while others are new to the industry or are fresh out of school. Our application process has proven one thing over the years: Soft skills, like honesty, social competence and enthusiasm need to be palpable—everything else can be developed and learned on the job over time. We view education as the key to sustainable development. For this reason, we maintain close relationships with schools and universities and offer internships. Furthermore, we actively offer internal job rotations and training programs for all age groups, and our team plays a decisive role in crafting our sustainability mindset. Our team is characterized by a willingness and enthusiasm to work together in a single direction. It’s a philosophy that for us comes naturally.
SDG 4 comes to life in Room 406, where everything serves to draw attention to lifelong learning. Education should be accessible to all people around the world and our right to learn all our lives should be especially cherished. Feel free to leave us a message on the old school chalkboard. After all, we used to store everything in our school desks, including our loves notes. An old chair is reminiscent of where our teachers once sat and the grading tables are free for you to use. The film roll nightstands and the book lamps are there to remind you that you can learn from all types of media. The standing lamps made with abacuses and rulers pay homage to our school tutors, while the discontinued textbooks are something we enjoy flipping through. How about you? Do you still remember it all today as you surely did back then? The foyer has a wardrobe made from small books—the selection of which was made with good reason. The luggage stand was made with a street sign (Attention: Student crossing), the backrest to which comes from an old theatre chair from the Ronacher Theater in Vienna. A sign in the bathroom proclaims “Achtung Schule” (Attention School Zone) to remind you of the importance of getting a good education—as does the towel holder made from a wooden ruler. The vanity mirror stands for the new generation of schooling—the early gen Mac screen was bestowed to us as a gift by a fan of the hotel.
