This monograph is one of APCEIU's EIU Best Practices Series, which aims to encourage educators, scholars, and activists to implement and share local initiatives on EIU. The Series No.33 introduces a program implemented at the Ganga International School in India to promote eco-friendly and multicultural society. Teachers, students, and local community members engaged in awareness raising events such as Recycled Paper Art exhibition, Tree Plantation Drive, and Anti-Malaria Project, allowing everyone to absorb the meaning of EIU and sustainable development. Furthermore, students partook in seed exchange program and video conferences to discuss environmental issues with students of partner schools, which amplified impact at local and global levels.
