CEDBİK Leads Green Schools Project in Turkey

CEDBİK Leads Green Schools Project in Turkey


The World Green Building Council and the Center for Green Schools look forward to collaborating with Green Building Council (ÇEDBİK  in Turkey) and green school leaders to establish a Global Coalition for Green Schools with the goal of all students being in healthy, safe and efficient schools within this generation.  Participating Global Coalition members will:

1. Work towards forming national coalitions for green schools;

2. Commit to advancing the mission of green schools for all within this generation;

3. Aim to participate in at least nine out of twelve monthly calls on an annual basis; and

4. Participate in Global Coalition for Green Schools’ international initiatives as appropriate

As a member of the Global Coalition Turkey committed to establish a national Coalition for Green Schools in Turkey. National coalitions will convene key players in their country’s green schools movement  including but not limited to: nonprofits, corporations, community members, education institutions or  associations and government officials.

Each participating country will identify a single leading entity for their national coalition (this could be a  Green Building Council or other organization or association). Each country lead will be responsible for  identifying relevant stakeholders and cultivating relationships to establish a national coalition. The national  leads will compose the Executive Committee of the Global Coalition.

The Executive Committee of the Global Coalition will work with each national branch to plan an official launch. Once established, each national coalition will identify its priorities, membership structure and program plans.
