Probha Aurora & FEE
Lighting the Path to Sustainable Futures Together!
Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) Programs
FEE is the world’s largest environmental education organization based in Denmark and recognized by UNESCO and UNEP. FEE operates globally five important programs, including the Green Key, Ecoschools and YRE. As a National Operator, Probha Aurora has been entrusted with implementing these programs with the technical guidance of FEE. It is noteworthy that both Green Key and YRE are being implemented by Probha Aurora.
Green Key is a leading international eco-label awarded to those offering lodging and hospitality facilities and committed to sustainable business practices. It is given to establishments that comply with eco-friendly criteria set by FEE that is independently verified through regular on-site audits. Our Green Key program is currently being implemented in the Tourism industry by the youth to promote sustainable tourism practices. After having a visible substantial change in this sector, we expect that youths will implement such practices in other sectors such as Business, Academia, Research, Environmental Management (waste management, water management, energy conservation), Food Industry (Responsible Procurement), Chemical Industry (Effective Microorganism Cleaning Products), Organic/Eco-friendly Products etc.
The Young Reporters for the Environment (YRE) program aims to empower young people to take a stand on environmental issues they feel strongly about and to give them platforms to express these issues through writing, photography or video initiatives. YRE offers such enthusiastic youngsters a chance to have their voices heard through high-quality journalistic work. The ultimate goal of YRE is to identify environmental injustices, offer solutions to them and involve relevant establishments to address environmental issues. We hope, our Young Reporters will be able to make a difference in their communities while also developing their leadership, critical thinking and communication skills. YRE is currently active in more than 42 countries worldwide and is still growing!
Eco-Schools is a global program, recognized by the UNDESA – UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (2005 – 2014) that empowers students to take an active role in promoting sustainability in their schools and communities.
The program provides a framework for schools to integrate environmental education into their curriculum and operations, with the goal of creating a more sustainable future.
