author: Galina Bakhshieva

The federal project “Green Schools of Russia”, already presented in Krasnodar region at the all-Russian forum “Eco World-2011”, will be incarnated in Bashkiria already this autumn. The specialists from Krasnodar region have become the first, who worked up the program of “green schools”. Later this program turned into the wide-scaled project “Green Schools of Russia”.

Several Russian regions have already stated their participation in the program, including Bashkortostan.

“Green Schools of Russia” is a federal partnership public program, which all schools of Russian regions and CIS may take part in.

The essence of the project is introduction of ecology in practically all spheres of school education and the main peculiarities of the program are the use of the network internet instruments and services in order to attract as many schools of Russia and CIS to participation in the project as possible, organizing interaction and exchange between all participants. “Green Schools of Russia” also presume the use of modern ecological and education content and various formats, such as films, video, games and interactive tasks. Besides, the “green crews”, consisting of pupils and teachers, will start working at the schools. The thematic months and so-called action days, when all schools carry out one and the same ecological action, will be held here. The program also presumes inculcation of the ecological infrastructure at schools: water- and energy-saving, waste recycling etc.

The initiators of the program intend to involve at least five thousand schools by May 2012. In a year this figure has to increase at least thrice.
