Information about the project
The purpose of the Eco-School project is to unite and create a community of young environmental activists, promote environmentally friendly lifestyle among young people and raise awareness of resource and energy saving.
In 2018, the pilot of the Eco-School project was successfully implemented in Shostka, where the API manufacturing department of JSC Farmak is located. 9 schools of the city became its participants. Within the project, students in grades 8-11 took an 8-month educational course on global theoretical environmental issues and learned to apply the acquired knowledge in practice. The best projects aimed at solving the environmental problems of a particular school were awarded the mini-grants from JSC “Farmak” for their implementation. The successful launch of the Eco-School project made it possible to broadcast to various parts of Ukraine, involving drivers of the environmental education movement, socially responsible business and, most importantly, the country’s caring, progressive youth. In 2018, the Eco-School project was included in the top 20 social projects in Ukraine.
In 2019, Farmak expanded the boundaries of the Eco-School environmental project and included 10 schools in Kyiv.
