Green Cameroon on the Green Schools National Environmental Clubs Competition 2023 Edition

Green Cameroon. Green School finals

Green Cameroon in the last couple of months has worked with the Best Schools Environmental Clubs in the South West, North and Far North Regions of Cameroon in a project known as the Green Schools National Environmental Clubs Competition.

Green Schools National Environmental Clubs Competition is an initiative through which Green Cameroon intends to engage and motivate schools, students and members of existing environmental clubs in Cameroon. The project permits these clubs to showcase their past and current activities carried out towards the conservation of nature and also serves as a source of encouragement to all those involve in the noble initiative of working towards Environmental Protection. It also serves as a medium for raising awareness at the levels of schools and communities towards the conservation of Nature in Cameroon.

Through the project, 30 secondary school environmental clubs from 3 region of Cameroon were selected and worked with during a period of 6 weeks. These clubs were assisted on showcasing their conservation activities in form of a competition in which 10 finalist schools were then selected for presentation to the general public for recognition and celebration through prices and awards. Dedicating some time, resources and attention towards these clubs and their activities in no doubt helped to boost their moral and encouraged both the students and their institutions to do even more as they were reassured that their conservation effort are yielding fruits and gaining public recognition.

The project involved working with 90 school environmental clubs (30 from each region) selected from the South West, North and the Far North Regions of Cameroon. To avoid moving the students too far from their homes and to limit other risks related to long distance traveling, each of the 3 regions had its own final competition for the selection and rewarding of the ten best schools and later, the three best. The finals for each of the three regions brought together in a physical location the 10 best selected schools to further showcase their activities in form of a competition and the award of prices.

The competition finals for all three regions were held on the 11th of March 2023 in Maroua, Garoua and Buea with the following results.
