CSE's Green Schools Programme (GSP) is a learning programme for schools that seeks to foster environmental education by moving beyond textbooks and concentrating on ‘doing’ activities. It helps schools audit their resource consumption and provides them with the methodology to carry out activities as environmental managers and plug gaps that are identified through the audit.
