Get GREEN Competition Winner – The Light of Knowledge





The Roots & Shoots student club, at the Bilingual Canadian International School (BCIS), as part of the Canadian International School System, is honoured to share the winning proposal for the CanCham Canada Green Day 2017 environmental initiative student competition.

Our project, “The Light of Knowledge”, combines a sustainable energy solution with education. We raise money to import portable, personal solar lanterns to give away to those communities in need with books, thereby incorporating an education feature into our environmental initiative project.
