Overview of Lauching event

In the hope of raising students’ awareness of clean energy and green lifestyle, the Green School program was inspired by the 50/50 education model in Europe, with activities aimed at promoting energy efficiency and environmental protection solutions at school and in the household. Each member of the Green Star Club will be a young ambassador, a pioneer in the field of energy with ideas to promote sustainable development in their community. The launching ceremony of Green School today was the first step for students to get familiar with the concept of sustainable energy and clean air, which in turn encourages their participation in the Green Star Club’s chains of activity in 2019.

Seeing that teachers and students participated with a willing-to-learn attitude, bright smiles, and attentive gazes, we understand that they are ready to team up with GreenID in “greening” the Trung Hoa school with a range of interesting Green School experiential activities waiting ahead.

After today, GreenID along with the school teachers will accompany students in getting to know critical environmental issues, giving up old habits that waste natural resources, listening, understanding, and sharing with Mother Earth. Climate change will no longer be some unfamiliar story or the responsibility of heroes saving the world, but the joint action of all of us. Above all, we expect and trust that students will experience a journey of self-discovery, connect with the surrounding nature and with the local community, and become ready to take action and responsibility. 

GreenID would like to express our sincere gratitude to the Board of Directors of the school and parents for trusting and supporting us in guiding and letting students to freely construct a Green School. We hope that schools along with parents will be as facilitative as possible, so that students can experience and contribute to a brighter, more sustainable future for the country where they were born.

Share and spread a green future to schools in Hanoi. Do you want to be the first one to make a positive change?
