A progressive learning ecosystem
The news in the air bubbles with the shock-‘Air Pollution Should be Looked Beyond Politics: Supreme Court Orders for Delhi-NCR which is at stake. An air emergency has been declared by the Delhi CM, Arvind Kejriwal from November 14 to 17, during which only the virtual classes of the city will be and no physical schooling
The snapshot clearly shows that the country’s capital has a worsening air pollution crisis, for which crop stubble burning, transport, coal-fired plants, and open garbage burning are key pollutants. The burning of carbon fuels produces large amounts of greenhouse gases which cause climate change and have harmful impacts on people’s well-being and the environment. However, the ecological problem is stated but how do we encounter it as global citizens?
A school in Bangalore addresses the ecological problem in a planned manner, because the School’s philosophy is all set to create environmental leaders. It is true that when problems come, people come with solutions. But how many people envision with a far-sightedness to stop the problem itself by working towards a VISION.
The Green School Bangalore (TGSB) is powerful with its vision of environmental sustainability and progressive with its mission. TGSB is a school which is having green walls to generate oxygen in school and also will be the first school to harvest rainwater.
A school with carbon panels to remove carbon dioxide and polluted air, located far away from the traffic and is a cradle of lush green farms and natural coconut trees.
TGSB is just not green but the future school for children providing the basic essentials of living. The question arises: ‘Is TGSB just a school’? It is a learning ecosystem for the students who work towards meeting the sustainable development goal 7 of the UN with the oath and onus of ‘Let’s pledge to plant more trees and use less existing energies and switch over to natural energies!’
A zero waste, zero carbon and a zero energy school is here to create awareness of the importance of natural and parallel fuels in the future generation-the budding environmental leaders.
