Sound Development of the Next Generation Education

AEON Eco-1 Grand Prix

AEON eco-1 Grand Prix

The eco-1 Grand Prix is a contest that gathers and recognizes eco actions taken on a daily basis by the next generation of high-schoolers, acting in school units. This is the event’s seventh season.

Through this event, we want to let as many people as possible know about real examples of diverse environmental action, to make them think again about eco actions they could be doing now, and to spur them to start actually taking action.

Even modest and down-to-earth eco actions can lead to a better global environment if they are practiced at many high schools, and then spread out into their communities. We are running this event again this year, in hope of widening this “circle of ecology”.
