Eco-Schools flies the first Green Flag in South Korea!

Chadwick International (CI) becomes the first school in South Korea to be awarded the Eco-Schools Green Flag award! 

Over the past 4 years the sustainability committee, which is comprised of faculty, staff, students, parents, as well as the partnerships with companies such as Our Home and TerraCycle, have worked to take action to make Chadwick International healthier and more sustainable. In 2018, the decision was made to join Eco-Schools programme, with an aim to empower the students to have a voice, and to provide them with opportunities to take meaningful action.
Mark Potter, CI Sustainability Committee co-chair reflected: " We are honoured to have recently been awarded the highly-coveted Eco-Schools Green Flag. Although we recognise that we still have progress to make in many areas, we are pleased that our efforts have been internationally recognised and acknowledged, and we are excited to continue our sustainability journey by working on new sustainability projects, generated by our students, to ensure that we maintain our Green Flag status in the years to come."
