Creating green spaces to enhance children’s learning and play
Tel Aviv-Yafo’s 200+ schools all have outside areas, many of which are exposed and therefore unsuitable for play during periods of strong sun and heat. This project aims to convert them into pleasant, green and shaded areas to create additional learning and play spaces, and develop vegetable gardens.
Green spaces in schools benefit students through:
- Connecting students and their environment;
- Hands-on teaching opportunities about nature;
- Enhanced awareness about healthy living.
The project will also enable schools to save by reducing cooling costs.
