Des écoles vertes, pour un avenir vert

Green Schools Green Future is a Canadian not-for-profit organization founded in 2018 by environmentalist Nikole Bélanger with the dream of introducing a new, progressive and green education system in developing communities. Its mission is to develop responsible leaders of tomorrow by teaching sustainable vocational skills.

At Green Schools Green Future (GSGF), we have a plan – a new and progressive education system that might steer this sinking ship to safety. We believe that by teaching the youth environmentally- sustainable trades such as vertical farming and aquaponics, we can empower them to have a stake in a better future. With machine learning on the rise, we know that over 40 percent of jobs may become obsolete by the time our students graduate. The curriculum at GSGF not only teaches students traditional subjects but also computer programming, artificial intelligence and blockchain.

A dedicated environmentalist servicing her community for decades, Nikole Bélanger is the founder of this project. Since 2008, through Nikobel Solutions, she has been consulting organizations who want to adopt green policies. Now, along with the help of 28 volunteers, she has developed partnerships with communities in Canada, Haiti, Sierra Leone, Gabon, and India to make her dream of a green education system come true.

But a dream without donations remains a dream. With an aim to begin building the first pilot school in early, 2020, GSGF needs to raise $240 000. That’s enough to finance the vertical farm and aquaponics system, the schools solar panels, its environmentally-sustainable building materials, furniture, supplies and computers, which will reduce the use of paper.


Originally from Montréal, Québec, Nikole Bélanger has over 30 years of experience managing businesses in multiple disciplines. Since 2008, she has been a part of an initiative led by Al Gore: The Climate Reality Project – Canada. She’s successfully implemented innovative concepts in the fashion industry, power transmission and distribution, and telecommunications. Nikole has also worked extensively on developing not-for-profit organizations. An idealist with a global vision and an eye for detail, Nikole continuously brings together people and projects. She is a passionate environmentalist, who works at developing awareness and action on environmental sustainability and climate change concerns. Her knowledge of environmental technology and her strong networking abilities are key assets to provide solutions toward a green economy and reducing collective carbon emissions by supporting green energy developments.

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. ”

"L'éducation est l'arme la plus puissante pour changer le monde." ‘Nelson Mandela’

Apprendre | Grandir | Écologiquement

Nous croyons que pour créer un avenir vert et durable, nous devons d'abord nous concentrer sur l'éducation. Green Schools Green Future s'efforce de construire des écoles qui :

  • Sont durables, autonomes et respectueuses de l'environnement

  • Offrent aux élèves et à leurs parents l'occasion d'en apprendre davantage sur les métiers et les technologies vertes

  • Donnent aux élèves les moyens de bien grandir et d'agir au sein de leur propre communauté

  • Offrent aux plus démunis un chemin vers un avenir meilleur

Nous prévoyons accomplir cette mission en construisant des écoles à l'aide de matériaux durables, de panneaux solaires, de systèmes de filtration de l'eau et en implantant des fermes aquacoles et aquaponiques.

Les avantages des technologies vertes :

  • Offers hands-on experience with aquaponic food and fish production as well as maintaining
    solar panels and water filtration systems

  • Helps students transition into a green career after graduation

  • Provides a source of healthy food for students and their families

  • Generates a surplus of food and electricity that can be sold to generate income for the
    school and the community

Comme nous le savons, il faut un village pour rassembler tous les projets et nous sommes sur un bon départ !
C'est pourquoi l'avenir de GSGF représente tout pour moi !

Marilyn E. McGoey
Secretary

It’s very exciting to be on board for GSGF as we open up sustainable schools and trades that encourages new education, farming, power grids, wind energy, and climate change—to
mention just a few. This is our new future with many partners globally working together.

Allen J. Maclure
Secretary/Treasurer

Pour moi, le projet Green Schools Green Future concerne le changement. Changement dans la façon dont l'éducation est dispensée dans les communautés en développement. Changement dans la façon dont ces collectivités peuvent prospérer et aller de l'avant dans la nouvelle économie verte. Changement dans la façon dont les futurs leaders sont créés.

Stanley Lilavois
Relations Officer

As someone who believes that everyone should have some environmental education in order
to protect the Earth. Today being a part of the GSGF project, I have the opportunity to
educate the young generation of my country Haiti and abroad, while learning so much
myself.
