IN THE WORLD, APPROXIMATELY 69 MILLION CHILDREN FROM 6 TO 15 YEARS OLD ARE NOT SENT TO SCHOOL. THERE IS AN URGENT NEED TO INCREASE THE RATE OF SUSTAINABLE EDUCATION AND TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF EDUCATION AND THE COMFORT OF THE CHILDREN IN SCHOOLS.

At the dawn of the era of scarce and expensive oil, it became necessary to review our construction techniques so that they are more suitable to places where we live and to our energy needs. To integrate energy efficiency technologies in the construction and renovation of buildings is a major issue in the North and the South. Mud, stone, wood or plant fibers for example, all really efficient are more accessible and convertible locally but rarely used in the Western world. Yet these materials offer many economic and environmental benefits.

The GoodPlanet Foundation is committed to children through the construction and/or renovation of school structures using local and natural materials using traditional craftsmanship. Associated with energy efficiency techniques adapted to the local climate, the construction of these schools provides a significant improvement of the thermal and acoustic comfort.

The construction of bioclimatic schools also aims to raise awareness from a young age to energy efficiency.
