First green school to open in September

TEHRAN, July 1 (MNA) – The 1st Iranian green school will open in September in Tehran.

The Iranian Department of Environment is the authority for the green school establishment in the country.

Cooperation between the Iranian Department of Environment and the Ministry of Education would help for implementation of such plans.

Deputy-head for the Department of Environment said that environment “means life, merriment, and environmental educations should be based on the same principles.”

Mahnaz Mazaheri said that the office would teach 56,000 teachers on environmental issues.

Students will be taught to learn about environmental issues and promoting the green culture, she was quoted to say.

Green Schools are the most effective agents for enacting significant positive environmental and educational change in schools and communities, the earth day official website says.

A green school aims to improve the health and energy-efficiency of the school facility and ensures science-based environmental and civic education in the classroom.
