Description

Some schools have been a part of the Sustainable Schools Initiative of the Environment Agency - Abu Dhabi since the start of the program in 2009. These schools have successfully integrated the four components of SSI into the DNA of their school – they do their Green Audit regularly, go on Field Trips, attend Training of the Trainer sessions to become better environment educators, and also have Eco Clubs that do internal and community projects to contribute positively to the environment. They have graduated to the next level of being a Sustainable School – this year, the teachers and students took several new schools under their wing and guided them to become more sustainable. Watch the students speak of their experiences of taking the lead, and the challenges they faced. Each of these schools – Abu Dhabi Indian School, Aisha Bint Abi Bakr School, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Bangladesh Islamia Private School, Al Talea’h School, Islamia English School & Qatr Al Nada School – was nominated for the Lead School Award in the official SSI 2015 Awards Ceremony.
