    31 Dominican Schools Receive International Environmental Certification
    Santo Domingo, September 1st, 2017

    31 Dominican schools received the Eco-Schools international environmental certification from the Environmental Law Institute of the Dominican Republic along with the Ministries of Environment, Education, and Agriculture. With this certification, these schools have joined the ranks of eco-friendly schools around the world.

    Eco-Schools is an internationally-recognized environmental certification granted to schools which attain high standards of environmental education. The program involves students, teachers, directors, and community members in the development of activities geared towards protection and conservation of the environment. It is coordinated internationally by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) and within the Dominican Republic by the Institution of Environmental Law of the Dominican Republic (IDARD).

    The Eco-Schools program is currently being carried out in 64 countries around the world and involves more than 49,000 schools. For the 2017-2018 academic year, 31 Dominican schools were honored with this designation. As a result, more than 14,000 students, 1,282 teachers, and 4,000 representatives from diverse communities around the country will feel the positive impacts that this designation brings.

    Since 2008, more than 50 schools in various provinces of the Dominican Republic such as La Romana, San Pedro de Macorís, Distrito Nacional, San Cristóbal, Constanza, San Juan, Puerto Plata, Barahona, Pedernales, Higuey, Bayahibe, Municipio de Guerra, Boca Chica, Constanza, Los Haitises, and Santiago have been granted the Eco-Schools certification.

    The Eco-Schools Green Flag award was granted for the achievement of the criteria and goals established during the 2016-2017 academic year, in which 22,553.59 kg of CO2 were sequestered as a result of the planting of 131,108 trees and vegetable gardens. Accompanied by the recycling of 34,469.82 pounds of materials, the program successfully avoided the atmospheric emission of 15,489.63 kg of CO2.

    Within the Dominican Republic, the Eco-Schools program is possible thanks to support and sponsorships from businesses and private organizations which play an active role in the development of the stated goals. Among these organizations are: Fundación Propagas, Ege Haina, Gildan, Unilever, Coalición Río Higuamo, Resicla SRL, and Funglode/GFDD.

    The schools to receive the certification were the: Colegio Babeque Secundaria, Colegio Cemep, Instituto Leonardo Da Vinci, Cathedral International School, Colegio Dominicano, Instituto Iberia, Escuela Básica San Antón, Escuela Básica Punta de Garza, Escuela Ismael Miranda, Escuela Básica El Tanque, Escuela Colonia de Juancho, Escuela Básica Punta Pescadora, Escuela Batey Esperanza, Escuela Arcadia Reyes, Escuela Cleotilde Castillo, Escuela Tomás Hernández Franco, Escuela Apolinar Concepción, Escuela Vitalina Mordán deCruz, Escuela Básica Basilio Frías, Escuela Manuel Emilio De Los Santos, Politécnico Eugenio De Jesús Marcano Fondeur, Escuela Profesor Juan Bosch, Escuela Primaria Miguelcho, Escuela Básica Jacagua, Escuela Básica Guaraguaos, Escuela Básica Perantúen, Escuela Básica La Gina, Escuela Básica Higüero Abajo, Escuela Básica Adaf, Escuela Colonia Japonesa, and Escuela Eugenio María de Hostos.
