Part A – Greening Your Campus: Environmental Audit Questionnaire
- Part A is the audit questionnaire that reviews schools’ efforts and initiatives within the campus, in relation to various environmental aspects. It is used to track schools’ environmental performance year-on-year.
- Part A is in a multiple-choice format which requires the provision of supporting details for selected questions.
Part B – An Active and Gracious Community: Environmental Outreach
- Part B focuses on community environmental outreach by students. Schools are required to initiate and execute an outreach project (within the assessment period) that will raise the public’s awareness with regards to any environmental issues and environmental causes of their choice (e.g. human-animal conflict management, conserving precious resources, promoting greenery and biodiversity etc.)
- Schools can select their own target audience for this outreach project. It can be the entire community at large or a specific sector of the community (e.g. neighbouring schools’ students)
- Through this component, participating green teams may develop vital skills such as project management, time management, creativity, problem-solving and communication skills while gaining a deeper knowledge of aspects of the environment.
- Part B is in an open-ended format which requires the provision of supporting details for selected questions.
