The Evason Resort was Thailand’s first ever Green Globe benchmarked resort and also the first Green Globe certified resort in Southeast Asia.
Green Globes is a green building assessment and certification system for commercial buildings.
During the field trip, the children learned how the Evason Resort focuses on energy management, water management, waste management and their successful attempts to increase biodiversity on the resort’s premises.
Lennard Kolthof, a teacher at Kajonkiet who accompanied the children, said “We also made a rather smelly exploration at the resort’s composting area.”
Back on campus, the children took part in a competition to see who could come up with the best recycling poster.
