Gobar Times Green Schools Programme takes a global leap

With an eventful and exciting three-year stint behind it, GTGSP is racing ahead in its fourth lap in India - but its sights are no longer confined within the country. In 2009, EEU entered the international arena, forging partnerships with governments and other global agencies in a bid to reach out to a wider and more diverse community of people.

Work Overview

The Green Schools Programme is an ‘inspection’ or ‘survey’ of the school done by its students on its environmental practices (which we call environmental auditing). The students form teams and go around the school on an exploratory journey and find out what’s happening – to the water, energy, land , air and waste in the school. How is the school managing these issues?
