The new training season on the platform starts on February 22. Each 6-11 grade student may complete study and compete for mini-grants awarded by Farmak to the best three eco-projects

 Each student of the Eco-School gets the opportunity to study according to the latest world methods, gain profound knowledge of sustainability, and change environmental awareness. The training program includes lectures on energy conservation, climate change impact on the planet, relationship in nature. Training is held remotely and interactively.
The course includes 12 lectures with subsequent check-up tests. The webinars involving the best environmental experts of Ukraine will be organized during the academic year.

The preparation of eco-projects for eco-grants is an important stage of training in the Eco-School. Students learn the basics of project management to present their ideas to the jury. The financial support for implementation will be provided by JSC Farmak to three best eco-projects. All participants will be awarded presents and certificates from the organizers.

Farmak launched crowdfunding site on Eco-School platform


Now eco-businesses can join the Eco-School and support students by funding their projects.


The Eco-School continues to extend. An online platform has recently been launched where businesses can select and support students’ eco-projects, and the teams that have been trained and submitted their projects to participate in the competition but have not been awarded mini-grants will be able to find sponsors and implement their ideas.


“Several years ago we started the mission of forming an environmentally conscious society by creating the Eco-School project. When it was extended to all over Ukraine we observed an acute problem of Ukrainian schools, especially schools in the regions (small towns, villages). They are neglected by public organizations, business and the country as a whole. After receiving applications for participation in the project, we saw the boundless creative potential of students and their desire to gain new knowledge and implement really significant projects. Selection is the most difficult thing in the Eco-School. The commission needs to select only three projects from a large number of applications and fund them. Other initiatives also deserve to be implemented. So we decided to involve society and business, to show people eco-projects that can change the world and find those who can finance them. In addition, the maximum project cost is UAH 25,000, and the minimum is UAH 10,000. This is not so large amount in terms of contribution to the strong foundation of our country’s ecological future,” said Olena Zubarieva, Head of the Corporate Communications and Sustainable Development Department of Farmak.
