Eco-Schools is the largest global sustainable schools program that engages students in action-based learning in the classroom and expands to the community. Greener is Cleaner operates as a club in Chadwick International, the first Eco-School campus recognized in South Korea.
With club members ranging in age from Grade 4 to 11 (age 9 to 17), Greener is Cleaner endeavors to make the school more sustainable. The club invites various stakeholders of the school including students, parents, teachers, and local institutions, to follow the Seven-Step Methodology set by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE).
Greener is Cleaner initiates and participates in community campaigns and projects. Some examples are beach and city clean-ups, the 'Return the Unnecessary' campaign, global climate strike, and Greenpeace Green New Deal Civilian Action. We take action for various causes including climate justice, biodiversity, fighting plastic pollution, and lobbying the government.
The main purpose of taking action on a local basis is to combine individual efforts to create a greater impact in the community. We feel empowered when we take action together with people who share a common goal. We build our networks and communication skills.
Podcasts allow the producers to share a genuine one-on-one time story with the listeners. They are a great platform not only build awareness of topics discussed but also to form a deep connection with the audience. Greener is Cleaner is planning on creating a simple podcast with episodes that address environmental news, innovations, Greener is Cleaner's activities, interviews with organization members and guest speakers, and more!
Two podcast series are uploaded every month, so subscribe!
Greener is Cleaner started as a website that shares information on current issues revolving around environmental issues like plastic pollution and global warming. Blog articles were a great source of quick information for students and visitors. We are determined to keep the tradition, sharing both local and international news in our own words.
Our team's researchers and writers from different parts of the world are in charge of the blog. Visit our blog page and read thought-provoking, informative, and/or surprising articles!
It has been over 5 years since the sustainable development goals have been set up by the United Nations, and since then a lot of progress has been made towards a more sustainable future. One of the leading groups advocating for the achievement of these goals is the youth, innovating and standing up for what they believe in. There are many youth leaders out there with potential yet to be tapped into, which is why we decided to host the SDG summit.
Throughout the duration of the summit, we plan on creating a platform that raises awareness of the SDGs and creates an international network of changemakers. There will be workshops, SDG and Environmental Olympiad, Eco Innovators and Policymaking contests, Essay contests, and more!
We understand how difficult starting an environmental club at school is. Even after the club is created, one may strain to think of ways to expand the club's activities and create greater and more practical impact in the community. Therefore, we provide free lesson plans for school environmental clubs for free!
Greener is Cleaner is a student-led club for the students at Chadwick International, South Korea. It has been running since 2018 for students in Grade 4 and 6~11 with over 10 students from each grade. Wonder what activities we do and how we expanded the members' age range? Look below!
