Shekou International School (SIS) has been recognized as a Green School by the Education Department of Guangdong Province

Date: February 6, 2024

Shekou International School (SIS) has been recognized as a "Green School" by the Education Department of Guangdong Province, a testament to its dedication to sustainability and eco-friendly practices. This award highlights the school's efforts to create a sustainable and environmentally conscious school environment, achieved through the collaborative work of students, faculty, and staff.

A Green School is committed to sustainable development, incorporating environmental education into teaching, learning, and management. This approach involves comprehensive environmental management systems and active participation from teachers, students, and parents.

Under the leadership of Head of School, Mr. Harish Kanabar, SIS has adopted the Green School initiative as a critical strategy. Initiatives include forming a Sustainable Development Committee, which developed a three-year action plan for sustainability encompassing goals, timelines, campus improvements, and curricular integration. SIS's commitment to raising environmentally aware global citizens is evident in its curriculum. The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are integrated into class units, and students engage in inquiry-based projects on ecosystems, biodiversity, and climate change. Hands-on experiences in rooftop gardens and vegetable plots further deepen students' understanding of environmental interdependence.

The school's dedication to an eco-friendly campus includes energy-efficient construction, external greening, and internal energy conservation efforts. Water and electricity usage is closely monitored, recycling bins are placed throughout the campus, eco-friendly paper is utilized, and a ban on single-use plastic and disposable items are enforced. Additionally, SIS has established 'Mian Fei Bay' at The Bay campus, a donation space for reusable items like clothes and toys.

As a "Green School," SIS is motivated to explore new sustainable concepts and innovations. Future plans include installing solar panels and the introduction of 'Meatless Mondays'. These initiatives demonstrate SIS's commitment to fostering a greener learning environment and contributing to global climate change efforts.

11月7日,美国芳香护理和精油企业多特瑞(dōTERRA)首发新品——蓝睡莲系列精油,包含蓝睡莲精油和“莲沐之光”香薰精油(复配),主要原料是产自中国的蓝睡莲精油。多特瑞除了带来首发新品,还首次将“无废”的理念引入展台,大量使用模块化、经济高效、可回收或循环利用的环保材料搭建,践行无废城市的理念。

自2014年进入中国以来,多特瑞“以香为媒”,坚持本土化创新发展。从2019年第二届进博会开始,多特瑞每年都在现场发布一款带有中国元素的精油产品。从中国风的“枫香”香薰精油,到上海风情的“海上寻梦”,从具有历史风韵的“飞天瑰丽”,到茶马古道的“云境之秋”,这些进博会首发新品有一个共同点——取材于中国本土。

今年的蓝睡莲系列精油,灵感来自中国古人赋予莲花以超出草木之外的文化寓意,抑或将美好愿望与道德理想灌注于草木之中。多特瑞希望将中国人的自强自立的品格与精神浓缩在一瓶瓶精油中,成为传香之作。
