How GSP Works

The school is the space and organization where students, teachers & staff, think and do as global eco-friendly citizens.

Learning To Improve The Environment

This is an outline of the far-reaching strategies GSP embraces, while thinking of our common future. We involve students in creative, well-designed curriculum-based activities. These are facilitated by engaging teachers and school management, with much enthusiasm, in the greening process.

The Learning Garden

Activity based gardening and environment classes, following a Green Curriculum in an organic patch and classroom, leading to a certificate for students.

Environment Improvement Projects

The development of a Green Action Plan through a School Environment Committee, whose membership includes school management, teachers and students. The plan will involve students in environmental monitoring, audit, decision-making and
implementation.

Training

Workshops on environment topics with teachers, managers and students, such as curriculum integration, growing your own food, Do-It-Yourself biotech and media, with films on topics including food, waste, water, energy and transport.

Materials Development

Open Source materials for teachers and students, such as teaching guides, student worksheets, a Green Curriculum in Urdu or English, a library of books, exhibits and films, open source resources on website, and workshop kits, which can be shared with anyone.

Documentation & Continual Improvement

Documentation and review of activities is built into the programme in order to improve and sustain activity.
