Abstract:

CREATING A LOW-CARBON ECONOMY IN THE HIGH  SCHOOL

Every year CO2 emissions increase. The sources of these emissions are varied, but people are the final cause. Our society is not concerned about the importance of this, but if we aware people from youth, situation will change.

Our investigation examines the environmental situation of our schools in different environmental sectors: water and electric consumption, waste and recycling, green areas and noise. Every sector has its own objectives.

Our objective is to propose various improvements in the educational sector to reduce carbon emissions, our impact in nature and economic spending which could be utilized in other sectors also.

The following points will be developed, clearly demonstrating the main problems, creating proposals and solutions, providing us with the final results which will enable us to create a better world.

We have verified that by changing our habits in our daily life our schools would save a lot of money on energy and the consumption would be surprisingly low. But for this to happen we would need everyone’s help.

 

Key words: water and electric consumption, waste and recycling, green areas, noise, carbon emissions, environmental impact, environmental situation, environmental sector.
