Green Teens Eco Project

13 Oct 2020
Our IB students – Year 1, completed an environmental project called Green Teens and reached the semi-finals of the world competition Global Social Leaders. And we as a school are very proud that we develop students' leadership skills for a better world.

The whole idea behind the project is making a compost and use it to provide sufficient soil that is healthy and flourishing to the younger kids so they can plant little plants in their own garden.

Our incredible IB learners presented the idea of the project and the concept of making a compost in front of the little ones – our students from Grades 1 and 2 at the end of the last school year.

“We wanted to respond the global trends and be environmentally friendly as we possibly could”, commented the participants in the global contest.

The project is a part of their IB CAS programme and deals with resolving a global issue.
