Uniquely created with biotecture concepts in Tolima Colombia, the Green School is a community hub developed by Sustainability tycoons – former contractors for NASA, UNDP, OAS, IADB -- working altogether to solve climate mitigation and adaptation through climate resilients challenges. This green school is a two story energy efficiency building which integrates bamboo, green walls, green roofs, photovoltaics, wind mills, water efficient systems and LED lights. The Ecotropics Group collaborates locally and virtually to exchange and implement sustainable best practices, and promote connections between schools, farming communities, and the infrastructure ecosystems that sustain them. We do this by: training kids and youth, including elders, creating forums; exchanging resources; offering holistic programs and syllabus developed by ecologists; and connecting youth to applied ecology.

Green Schools can play a vital stewardship role to:

LINK people across socio-economic, geo-political and inter-generational boundaries;

DEVELOP healthy, supportive learning environments;

SURF youth to nature;

EDUCATE the greatest number of people to embrace a shared understanding about social, environmental, and ecological economics stewardship; and

FOSTER the values, long-term vision, and skills to live sustainably together.
