Dear participating schools:

To implement the spirit of General Secretary Xi Jinping's important speech during his visit to Yunnan and implement the "Regulations on Promoting the Construction of Ecological Civilization in Yunnan Province", Yunnan Province’s schools are called up to strengthen education in ecological civilization; in response to General Secretary Xi Jinping's proposal at the 75th session of the United Nations General Assembly, China will enhance its independent contribution and adopt more effective policies and measures. China will strive to reach the peak of carbon dioxide emissions by 2030 and strive to achieve the goal of carbon neutrality by 2060.

On September 10, 2020, the Yunnan Department of Education issued the 《Notice of Yunnan Department of Education Central Office on the Implementation of the Pilot Project of Low carbon Schools of EU and HPP in Yunnan Province》, inviting schools in Wuhua District, Panlong District and Chenggong District of Kunming City to sign up.

In December 2020, schools submitted the relevant application materials of "Low Carbon Pioneer Schools in Yunnan Province". After careful evaluation by the project management committee, 35 schools were nominated as candidates for "Low Carbon Pioneer Schools in Yunnan Province"

The project management committee evaluated and selected the schools based on their project work in 2021, with reference to the criteria in the "Annual Project Evaluation Form" in Annex 1 of the "Low Carbon Pioneer School Leadership Team Management Manual" issued by the project. Now 29 schools are officially awarded as "Low Carbon Pioneer Schools" and 10 schools are awarded as "Top 10 Schools of 2021" (see Annex 1 for the list).

As the current COVID control situation in China and Kunming is still severe, the second summit of the Low Carbon Schools Network of Yunnan Province and the awarding ceremony of the first batch of Low Carbon Pioneer Schools of the EU-HPP Yunnan Low Carbon Schools Pilot Project were adjusted to meet the requirements of epidemic prevention. The policy interpretation, expert training, and school exchanges were changed to online, and the awarding ceremony was changed to a decentralized one, where the project team will arrange for a special person to visit the schools to award the medals.

Hereby announce.

Project introduction:

Yunnan Low-carbon Schools Pilot Project is funded by the European Union and implemented by the People to People Foundation (Spanish member of HPP) in cooperation with FAIHPP (Switzerland) Yunnan Representative Office, Yunnan Academy for Science and Technical Information, Southwest Forestry University, Chinese Youth Climate Action Network, Green Kunming (Kunming Environmental Popular Science Association) and  Kunming Good Deed Public Welfare Community Development Service Center with a project cycle from January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2023. The project begins by increasing partners’ awareness and advocacy on climate change mitigation and environmental protection, by raising climate change awareness among 600 schools, 70,000 students and teachers, determine the emission benchmark through basic calculation, and then implement emission reduction work in 50 Carbon Compliant Pioneer Schools. Use science, technology, innovation and other means to respond to “climate action” to accelerate environmental sustainability and promote the transition from green campuses to low-carbon and carbon-neutral campuses.


The project is funded by European Union.
