Dedee DeLongpré Johnston, director of sustainability at Wake Forest University, offers these simple suggestions to achieve a “greener” move-in by doing more with less. Here are 10 ways to make your school greener.
Geneva-Switzerland/ Green Cross International (GCI) on Africa Day announced the extension of the Smart Water for Green Schools project to four more schools in Ghana. This follows a successful pilot phase at the Al-Iman Primary School in the Bong Ahafo Region. The project extension to the additional schools will provide 2,000 school children and some 70teachers in the five communities with access to water and better sanitation, benefiting a local population of 10,500.
“It is the overwhelmingly positive feedback from the pilot communities that has ensured that the project is extended. The Smart Water for Green Schools project is vital to the health and livelihood of communities in Ghana because of our diminishing water tables and polluted water sources,” said Mubarick Masawudu, President and CEO of Green Cross Ghana. “The water collected in the harvesting systems is often the only source of clean water in the community,” he said.
