British International School, Riyadh

The British International School Riyadh (BISR) is proposing an integrated education for sustainability project to install solar panels, solar heating and solar tubes, recycling water and creating a compost centre from school kitchen and cooking class waste. The savings from the project (e.g. reduction of bills) will be used to benefit two programmes in poverty-stricken areas of Nepal.

Student learning focus: The project is led entirely by students; it includes aspects of entrepreneurship and building vocational skills for environmental industry (e.g. building management system data analytics exercises).
