CLAAP for K-12 Schools


CLAAP expands to Climate Awareness and Action Program. Green Initiatives to improve hyperlocal environmental parameters reduce air pollution, improve water & soil quality, effective waste management and energy conservation.

Following are the key components of CLAAP:

  • Registration of the school with the Centre for Science & Environment (CSE) under their Green School Program (GSP).
  • Green Initiatives to improve hyperlocal environmental parameters, reduce air pollution, improve water & soil quality, effective waste management and energy conservation – initiatives for three years with the aim of getting the school certified as a "Green School" by CSE within 3 years.
  • Installation of weather station, Air/Water/Soil quality sensors for regular monitoring.
  • Modules on Earth Spheres for Teachers on www.hydenmet.academy
  • Activities & Experiments for students mapped to the curriculum.
  • Registering the school with GLOBE (Global Learning & Observations to Benefit the Environment), a collaboration platform funded by NASA, after the Indian Ministry for Environment, Forests and Climate Change refills the “Globe Coordinator” position.
  • Assisting the school with the Green School audit by CSE
