Greening Our Schools Launch Day
FortisTCI is a flagship sponsor and supporter of the Greening Our Schools programme launch event. The initiative is steered by the TCI Education Department in partnership with DECR and is an exciting and innovative initiative encouraging sustainable approaches and environmental management on school campuses.
It requires schools to develop practical and creative ways to reduce their carbon footprint, increase or conserve biodiversity and sustainably use their natural resources. In addition, the program aims to develop energy and environmentally literate citizens through service projects, leadership and activism.
Greening Our Schools addresses four ‘problem’ areas, namely, waste management; electricity conservation; water conservation; and biodiversity, aiming to make environmental awareness and action an intrinsic part of the life and ethos of a school – which hopefully will rub off onto their community, and carry right through to adulthood!
