We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Mr. Virendra Rawat of Green Mentors for his invaluable mentoring on our Green Initiative." - Ms. Usha Mohan, Founder & Director of The Green School Bangalore TGSB, a zero carbon waste and energy school, has long been a trailblazer in the field of sustainable education. The school's lush green campus, which perfectly embodies the principles of sustainability and ideology, has now been recognized as a true champion of UNESCO 2030 Goals. This recognition underscores TGSB's unwavering commitment to fostering a culture of environmental consciousness and green education.
At The Green School Bangalore, sustainability is not just a buzzword but a way of life. The school firmly believes in the importance of taking concrete actions to reduce carbon emissions and create a healthier environment for current and future generations. Through a myriad of innovative projects and initiatives, TGSB has seamlessly integrated the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into its curriculum. This unique approach ensures that students not only receive a top-tier education but also develop a profound understanding of sustainable practices.
TGSB has harnessed the power of solar energy to significantly reduce its carbon footprint. Solar panels strategically placed throughout the campus harness sunlight and convert it into clean, renewable electricity. This not only reduces the school's dependence on non-renewable energy sources but also serves as a valuable educational tool. TGSB goes beyond traditional education by providing students with a real-world connection to environmental science through its weather station. The weather station is an integral part of the campus, allowing students to monitor and analyze local weather patterns and climate data.
TGSB's green curriculum is the backbone of the school's commitment to environmental education. This specialized curriculum is designed to immerse students in sustainable practices and instill a sense of responsibility towards the environment. Through the green curriculum, students learn about topics such as renewable energy, biodiversity conservation, waste reduction, and climate change.
This remarkable achievement would not have been possible without the dedication and passion of TGSB's exceptional team. Their tireless commitment to embodying the principles of the SDGs on a daily basis has been instrumental in this success. Moreover, the invaluable contribution of the school's esteemed faculty, who have worked diligently to integrate these goals into the curriculum, cannot be overstated. With the International Green School Award 2023 in hand, The Green School Bangalore is more motivated than ever to continue its journey towards a greener and more sustainable future. This accolade serves as a testament to the school's enduring commitment to environmental stewardship and its role in nurturing the next generation of eco-conscious leaders.
