Exploring Six Principles of Sustainable School Design

An Article for WISE - World Innovation Summit for Education, 2012
By Randall Fielding, Chairman, Fielding Nair International

The World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) was launched by Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development in 2009. WISE aims to transform education by highlighting its leading role in global development, and by fostering innovative thinking and practices.

Randall Fielding’s article makes a compelling connection between ecological principles and those needed for innovative school design. Strategies that create sustainable schools can also enhance the learning that occurs on the campus, enriching students and the planet at the same time.

Dr. Benson Kamau, Curriculum and Technology Consultant says, “Brilliant article and refreshing in the way it links the design of schools to the design of life.”
