Talks Series #20|Green Educators Workgroup (GREW)



About the Talk

GREW (Green Educators' Workgroup Penang) is a non-governmental organisation that was established by a group of passionate green educators from different schools, universities and educational institution.


The primary reason that this workgroup was formed because they found out that there are needs of forming a team among green educators to support, exchange ideas and motivate each other in the journey as educators in Education for Sustainable Development (ESD).


Moreover, this workgroup also aims to move the Eco-Schools Programme in Penang and other related ESD activities such as recycling, beach clean up, sharing sessions, workshops and so on. In the process, they work closely with all the Eco-Schools in Penang, providing guidance, ideas, workshop to ensure all Eco-Schools able to run this programme impactfully. This linkage among schools also provides opportunities to schools to run state, national and international level programmes that will benefit the students and empower them.


GREW also plays the roles to link with different agencies from local and abroad to organise workshop, courses and fieldtrip that will enhance teachers knowledge and understanding on ESD to implement in schools. GREW also works closely with state and federal government to ensure government environmental friendly initiative can be implemented in schools.
