Green Schools Campaign 2013-2014 Takes Off

The Green Schools Campaign is back! And so are the sessions and activities with the students!

A lot of sessions with schools have already been completed and many more are to follow in the coming weeks..

We look forward to an exciting year, interacting with a host of Changemakers from various schools in the city!
