The School on Magic Mountain
They are the elite of tomorrow. Born privileged, raised in wealth and now safely nested in the best private school in the world, in Switzerland no less, to prepare for a lifetime as leaders.
An iconoclastic American teacher starts a whole new subject - the future. But how do you motivate students who do not have to worry about it? Hugh sets them on a journey of unorthodox teaching ideas, field trips to the rest of the world far from their pampered school dorms. His mission: making them experience firsthand the three major problems of their generation: energy decline, economy and overpopulation.
Will Hugh succeed in shifting their focus from the excessive Geneva party life to the reponsibilities they will have to deal with as future leaders? Four personal stories about growing up in a world of global challenges. In the war for what is left, who will they choose to be when the world calls?
