Green Schools and Students

Gandhi famously said “we must be the change we wish to see in the world”. Never has this been more true than for the youth of today as it pertains to their natural environment.

Climate Cycle’s initial green gateway are solar energy installations in schools. To date, 12 solar panel arrays, at 11 schools have been funded and installed, with one more in the pipeline. Subsequently, Climate Cycle Solar Schools have gone on to numerous non-solar sustainability projects, including urban agriculture, active outdoor education, waste reduction initiatives, and a medley of other green schools projects.

This formula has proved a powerful mechanism for garnering a growing body of student engagement, including 450+ student riders and walkers in our annual Ride/Stride to Recharge, a Student Leadership Board, and growing numbers of green schools projects.
