New of its kind initiative in supporting for Greening !!

New of its kind initiative in supporting for Greening !!

Global energy consumption in 2018 surged nearly double the average rate of growth since 2010, driven by a sturdy global economy and higher heating and cooling needs in several parts of the world. Even though the renewable energy harvesting and utilization is growing at faster pace demand for all conventional fuels increased. Higher electricity demand was the major contributor in this. Energy efficiency saw lack lustre improvement. As a result of higher energy consumption, CO2 emissions rose 1.7% last year and hit a new record. Effects of this increase in emissions are well understood by all stakeholders of this earth very well and are trying out in all possible ways to reduce the same.



Out of different strategies employed, awareness was found as one of the best since the implementation of the same requires very less investment. Even application of this awareness strategy at right place will yield further more fruitful results. Exactly speaking awareness regarding importance of adapting green concepts at school level itself will accelerate the activity.

Many schools have already started working towards greening in one or other way but are due to lack of funds, guidance, further motivation the results were getting delivered at very slow pace. To accelerate this and to support (even financially) the schools in implementing 
green concepts many organizations are providing great opportunities through competitions. One such program where I came to know is CII IGBC’s “Green your school program 2019”

Program Overview:

This is a nationwide competition for schools across India where 1500 students participate every year. As part of the contest, students have to prepare a presentation (PowerPoint presentation) including ideas to convert their school into a Green School. Eight schools would be shortlisted for awards. The schools will be awarded as follows: 
  • The top three schools would be given away the trophies and cash award of Rs 4.0 Lakhs towards implementation
  • The next five schools would be supported with a cash award of Rs 1.5 Lakhs towards implementation.
  • All the participating schools would be receiving ‘Certificate of Participation’.  

Top 3 participants will be making presentation to a distinguished audience at the prestigious CII IGBC’s Green Building Congress 2019

Participants should be from 8th / 9th / 10th standard. 

Last Date for applications

Hope many initiatives of these kind by organizations across the world will boost up the process of greening the earth and also helps in creating eco sensitive citizens.
