PROMOTING BIODIVERSITY ON CAMPUS
GREEN CAMPUS PROGRAM
“Green Campus Program enables schools and colleges to conserve natural resources like water and biodiversity, optimize energy efficiency, manage waste and educate about climate change and sustainability while addressing well-being of the students as compared to conventional educational institutes.”
Green Campus Program (GCP) is a flagship program of the Climate Project Foundation. In our vision and mission of creating a sustainable tomorrow, GCP serves as an
effective transformative catalyst. As the name suggests, the objective of the program is to transform the conventional campuses into green campuses.
We believe that the climate crisis needs long-term and highly impactful solutions, and there is no better tool to resolve it than education. To inculcate the values and bring about behavioural changes in our future generations making them more planet-sensible, we are setting examples right there in the campuses through physical and behavioural changes.
HOW IT WORKS?
The first step in the Green Campus Program is to make the teachers aware about the science, impacts and solutions of climate change through a one day training program. After which they can take up an online program to learn further and test their knowledge. The teachers are also provided with online educational resources which builds their confidence to take the message of the climate crisis and solution to the classrooms.
Teachers Training Program
It is a half-day workshop on climate change, Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the six thematic areas of green campus.
Teachers are provided with Online Teaching Resources like Posters, Infographics, Comics, Workbooks, and Booklets.
Teachers are offered a free Online Certification course on climate change to learn more about the issue and in-hand solutions.
Through GCP, we enable schools and colleges to conserve natural resources like water and biodiversity; optimize energy efficiency; manage waste; and educate about climate change and sustainability, while addressing the well-being of the students as compared to conventional educational institutes.
