The City of Busan has announced that its ‘Clean Energy School’ Project won the champion award at the Green Apple Awards.
The Green Apple Awards began in 1994 and are run by The Green Organization – an independent, non-governmental, non-profit, environmental group dedicated to recognizing, rewarding and promoting environmental best practices around the world. The awards are recognized by the EU Commission and the Environment Agency in UK. Each category includes a green champion, gold, silver and bronze award.
The ‘Clean Energy School’ Project, which is jointly promoted by Busan Metropolitan City, the Busan Metropolitan City Office of Education, the Korea Energy Agency and the Busan Climate & Environment Network, seeks to introduce photovoltaic power generation systems to 100 elementary, middle and high schools in Busan over five years from 2018 to 2022 to achieve energy self-sufficiency in the schools. The project will help students learn about and experience energy production and saving, and to practice what they learn from the project in their daily lives.
The city expects the award-winning ‘Clean Energy School’ Project will pave the way for an increased awareness of new & renewable energy to the public, and encourage public participation, including future generations, in new & renewable energy policies.
