In the morning of June 17th, GreenID held the launch ceremony of the “Green School” program at Spring Hillp Primary School and Secondary School.
The Spring Hill School is located 40km far from the center of Ha Noi. It is probably the “highest” school which people in the “Green School” program has visited. Because it is on the hill and close to nature, the air here is so fresh, cool. Therefore, the launch ceremony took place very successfully in spite of the fact that Ha Noi is so hot.

This launch ceremony is actually a conversation where students know more about the “Green School” program, energy and give opinions, thoughts on strange but practical topics in daily life.
The painting competition is an opportunity for students not only to show their talent but also to give opinions, measures of energy, rubbish, water and help to protect the environment around us. Students at Spring Hill School took part in many environmental projects, including the use of fruit peels for dishwashing, cleaning up, knitting bags instead of plastic bags, waste classification, and recycling. They also proposed the use of renewable energy sources such as wind and solar energy to replace traditional energy sources using fossil fuels to pollute the environment.
Ms. Nong Thanh Nga, the representative of Spring Hill Primary School and Secondary School, welcomed the “Green School” program. She hoped that the activities of the program would help students to raise their awareness and have interesting experiences.
Besides, Spring Hill schools were supported to install air quality meters like a site for metering the air quality, which helps students to learn and know how to track the daily air quality at their school.
Through this session, we believe that new members of Green Star Club at Spring Hill schools will bring about many interesting stories and good solutions for renewable energy and the economical and efficient use of energy.
This activity is part of the project "Civil society meets RE&EE: training, seminar and communication skills to boost RE&EE as a key tool for sustainable development and green growth strategy in Vietnam (E-Enhance)", funded by the EU.
