EDUCATION towards sustainability

The Green School project seeks to educate about caring for the environment with an emphasis on Eco-efficiency from school. Allowing students to transform their schools into more ecological places through various artistic and agro-ecological projects.

We also use education as a key driver to promote the social and economic development of the community, all with a focus on gender equality, while promoting the conservation and regeneration of the natural ecosystems of the coastal areas of Baja Manbí in Ecuador.


Faced with the rapid population and tourist growth that occurs in the region, the biggest problem that the community of Las Tunas faces is environmental pollution, inadequate management of solid and liquid waste, deforestation of green areas and the loss of living ecosystems.


Greater educational opportunities allow them to develop their potential and, later, earn a decent income. According to the European Commission, environmental education can encourage the emergence of entrepreneurs and innovative companies in sectors related to sustainability, which can boost economic growth and job creation. With this project we increase equal opportunities and social inclusion from the coastal town of Baja Manabí. In addition, the educational level of the region will increase in the long term and future adults will be trained to take a more active role in solving their civic problems.
