    Low Emission Schools Programme aims to empower students to effectively influence their communities on climate change and sustainability , while reducing CO2 emissions within the school.

    Activities: (2014 - 2020)
    This programme is carried out through actions led by the educational community. These activities are registered on a platform that serves as an interactive portal for environmental education.

    All the implemented actions are reported and tracked on the www.ganalealco2.com. This internet platform serves not only as a sustainable and cost-efficient MRV-system but also as an interactive portal for environmental education. On this website the CO2 emission-calculator-tool allows for stable monitoring and evaluation. The tool allows students to get to know the greenhouse gas (GHG) emission baseline of their school and track the changes. Furthermore, schools share their results, experiences and best practices, thus empowering more students and improving methodologies continuously. After a review by the NGO, an annual reports is sent to the Ministry of Environment.

    Impact and MRV


    Cumulative GHG reductions: No data available
    Mitigative capacity:

    No information has been provided on mitigative capacity


    Social: Visibility and dissemination of the project at a national level. Empowerment of students, offers access to a national action platform against climate change.
    Economic: Investment in tangible, visible and sustainable actions benefiting communities direct.
    Environmental: Direct support to accomplish goals of climate change and education in Mexico.

    MRV Framework:
    No MRV plan has been defined


    A pilot project was implemented in 2013 and 2014. 34 schools from 5 Mexican states developed their GHG emission baseline and some mitigation school level projects. The integrated baseline was 3000 tCO2 and the estimated reduction potential was 600 tCO2. The expansion of the project will allow to reach at least 5000 schools, reducing around 45000 tCO2/year
