Benefits of greener schools
Green school grounds encourage students to be more well-mannered and tolerant
Interaction with nature increases academic performance
EcoSchools increases levels of concentration
Children spend more awake hours in school than they do at home. Therefore, it is important that schools are designed in a way that encourages relaxation and that the climate is as healthy as possible for children. However, most schools use concrete to construct spaces for young learners. This kind of environment has a harshness that is unsuited to the playful nature of children.
Schools will hardly have any green areas or encourage children to interact with nature. Research shows that learning environments with a greater number of plants, greener views, and access to natural play areas demonstrate a lower level of stress for children.
GARDARICA’s eco school’s solution aims to create a nourishing and relaxing school environment.
We implement vertical gardens around the school making use of our Gro-WallTM technology to install living walls in the interior and exterior of schools. These green walls have a myriad of benefits including improving air quality, reducing dust and increasing stress resistance. They will also create a sound barrier making the school a more ambient environment for children. Green roofs can be added to schools giving children a place to garden. Gardening will increase learning focus in children as well as equipping them with useful skills.
