The Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya Alumni Association (JANVAA) honored the APSCC founders for promoting ‘green campus’ strategies. The school’s concept of a green campus advocates a model for global environmental sustainability where all the processes and operational functions of the campus are closely knit, providing educational and practical value to the institution and the surrounding environment.

The team helped introduce measures such as waste water treatment system, xeriscape, biogas generation, compost and vermicompost production, organic vegetable garden and organic herbal garden in an integrated manner. According to school authorities, since the inception of the green campus initiative (GCI), the school has bagged various awards at the national and State-level. Moreover, the school has hosted eminent professionals and scientists from US, Europe, Brazil and from various parts of India whose visits motivated students to embrace environmental sustainability.

Vinayathan, school Principal, said since adopting green campus initiatives, the environmental awareness among the students and their attitude towards conservation has significantly increased.
