The Solar School

High in the mountains of Costa Rica there’s a wonderful little place called Chimirol. Their primary school, of about 250 students, including many siblings and cousins, has become a shining example of sustainability. They will be the first public school in the country to be certified carbon neutral, after already receiving ecological certification. Their motto is reuse and recycle, they grow food in their own greenhouse and since 2014 they’ve been powered by solar.

Well, if you’ve got a spare 2 minutes you can listen to Yonder, Nicole and Dalay tell you all about it.

Special thanks to Escuela Chimirol for their time and Purasol and Foundation ALTENER for making the project possible.
