Green Schools Programme

Green Schools Program is a customised initiative for schools to audit the natural resources within their premises. In this program, schools are required to assess their share in polluting the environment & their usage of natural resources as well as how to map their consumption & wastage. Bhavyata Foundation collaborates with the Green Schools Programme, an initiative of the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) to promote environmental education in Mumbai. The Green Schools Programme focuses on practical work and not just theoretical learning. It is an environmental education program directed to sensitising students to the environment through hands-on and thought-provoking activities.

Green Schools for Future

The Green Schools Programme aims to educate teachers and students about their consumption and wastage of resources. They are then taught to audit their usage which is called Green Schools Programme Audit. Teachers and students are made to audit 6 resources which are air, energy, food, land, water and waste. According to the audit, the schools then implement necessary measures like rainwater harvesting, water recycling, waste management, tree plantation to maintain an environmental balance.
