Green Schools Campaign

Introduction

The Green Schools Campaign is an exciting hands-on programme, open to all schools in Mumbai, that educates children on their responsibility towards the environment and also offers them the opportunity to actually be involved in relevant environmental projects! This Campaign took off in 2010 with 12 participating schools and that number has now grown to over 50 schools!

The theme for the Thirteenth Edition (2022-2023) of the Campaign is 'Natural Re-sort'

Natural Re-sort is a play of words which indicate re-sort as sorting out our waste and a resort towards natural and sustainable ways of life. Recently, the city of Mumbai adopted a Climate Action Plan (MCAP), which aims to highlight demographic data, define socio-economic and ecological features of the city, create a ‘climate profile’ by setting tangible emission reduction goals and developing action and implementation strategies. All these achieved, by conducting an in-depth sector analysis across six key areas. This year, we will focus on two of these sectors: Sustainable Waste Management and Urban Greening and Biodiversity. Hence, through the year, we will assist the students in:


1. Not too late for Climate: Introduction to Climate Action and MCAP.

2. Hasting against Wasting: Learn to sustainably manage waste.

3. Creating a Green Scene: Exploring and learning about Green Spaces.
