Description and Evaluation

In 2007-08, the energy and environmental chapters were expanded to link the use of fossil fuels with global warming and climate change. The Green Pack is an environmental education package, which was originally developed in 2001-04 with support from Toyota.

Since 2001, the Green Pack has been implemented in 9 countries. Over 22,000 Green Packs have been produced, more than 15,000 teachers have been trained to use it, and some 1.8 million students have been taught using its interactive multimedia materials.
