We invited COBIS students to produce a short film showcasing a project they had carried out to improve the environmental sustainability of their school. Through this competition, we hoped to develop COBIS students’ environmental awareness and empower them to take action. Congratulations to all students who took part. The competition judges, NAEE, were extremely impressed with the incredible work being carried out in our member schools around the world.
