Sustainability at
GEMS Founders School, Al Mizhar

Sustainability is woven into the fabric of our school, reflecting a deep commitment to environmental responsibility and a vision for a greener future. Central to our initiatives is the integration of electric car charging stations on campus, a collaboration with DEWA Energy Conservation. This strategic move has resulted in a remarkable 40% reduction in our carbon footprint, as we actively embrace clean energy for transportation.

Beyond transportation, our sustainability endeavors extend to a hydroponics garden that not only supplies fresh produce but also serves as an educational tool. This initiative provides students with hands-on experience in sustainable agriculture, fostering a profound understanding of efficient resource utilization.

Our commitment to responsible practices is further evident in our recycling campaigns. More than a mere segregation of waste, these campaigns represent a collective effort to reduce landfill waste, promote recycling, and instill a culture of environmental stewardship among our students. The message is clear: every action counts in our journey towards a more sustainable future.

What sets our sustainability efforts apart is the active involvement of our students in innovative projects. These initiatives go beyond theory, empowering students to design eco-friendly solutions and address local environmental challenges. By taking the lead in these projects, our students not only showcase creativity but also develop a sense of ownership and responsibility for the environment.

In embracing electric car charging, hydroponics, recycling, and student-led innovations through projects mapped into SDGs and COP28, our school stands as a beacon of sustainability. We are not just imparting knowledge about the importance of preserving our planet; we are providing students with the tools and experiences to be leaders in creating a more sustainable and environmentally conscious world. Our parents get involved in various initiatives as well.

Our journey towards sustainability is a holistic and dynamic one, where each initiative contributes to a collective effort to build a better, greener future for all.
