Challenge

Past 30 years, the rapid industrialization, urbanization, and economic growth in China. But in the meantime, people have also witnessed the environmental degradation of land, river, and natural resources as well as the rapid disappearing of local culture, and the disintegration of rural villages with most young people leaving to the cities working as hire labors, and has left women, children, and elders in the villages. The sustainable development of the villages is facing great challenges.

Solution

We expects a multiplying effect of the program beyond the school environment, where awareness in the larger community will be raised through the activities of the students. Examples of activities that are already implemented at some Green Eco-Schools include: reduction in use of disposable products and plastics, proper treatment and collection of garbage, small scale organic farming by teachers and students in school yards, and installation of green energy at schools.

Long-Term Impact

In the long-term, the project promotes education for sustainable development (ESD) in rural China.
