Our new partner in New Zealand: World Solar! (Feb 11, 2020)
SfS is already applying their global experience to help fund 5 New Zealand school solar energy projects and will soon start delivery of energy literacy and climate-change education in the country.
SfS is a UK social impact company founded in 2015 that has expanded to Continental Europe and India to support schools with fund raising for solar projects and with their education programmes.
At its core is an innovative way for community funding by ethical investors in school solar projects, creating practical examples of sustainability to inspire the next generation of students. At no cost or risk to the school solar energy generation is made possible for the school and experiential-based education is made real to students, all the while still allowing these ethical investors to earn a fair return for their investment in realising the Solar-for-Schools goal of reducing carbon emissions.
Solar for Schools has built a proven international track-record across a number of countries by empowering schools to tackle climate-change anxiety through adopting solar energy and preparing students for tomorrow’s challenges with energy literacy and climate change education overseen by its International Education Advisory Board of leading experts from the UK and across Europe. It is for this reason World Solar chose to partner with Solar-for-Schools to bring to New Zealand schools and students the benefits of this program in transforming our schools in solar learning schools.
By partnering with Solar-for-Schools, World Solar have already begun crafting a kiwi version of this highly successful international solar school & student education program that, as guided by the OECD 2030 Future of Education Framework, will inspire and educate by stimulating real innovation from sustainable renewable solar energy and witnessing its real-world impact on school carbon footprints.
“World Solar has partnered with Solar for Schools to bring New Zealand Schools a climate-change education program that resonates with the global
OECD Learning Compass 2030 Framework”
