The Western Academy of Beijing strongly believes in caring for and respecting our environment. We realize that our future depends on protecting the health and well-being of our children and the planet.
Over the years, WAB has implemented multiple programs to make the school environment healthier for students and staff, while also reducing our ecological footprint.
Through these initiatives, we empower our students to be responsible global citizens and encourage the greater WAB community to get involved in finding solutions to the environmental problems we face together. On our campus and beyond, WAB is helping to make a difference.
Installed LED lights, motion-activated light switches and a green roof in the High School building.
Indoor Air Quality
Installed air purifiers throughout the school, and built a multi-sport air-supported structure (Tiger L'Air). Learn more about our Air Awareness:
Water and Outdoor Air Quality
Duck Lake, which was ‘adopted’ by WAB in 2006, is part of the Sun River and is nestled between the High School and Middle School campuses. The cleanup of the lake provides an educational focus for the school and contributes to the broader community.
Installed motion-activated water faucets in all school areas to help save water on our campus.
Green Generation Environmental Education Center
The Green Generation Environmental Education Center project was created by WAB in partnership with Bayer China and the Jane Goodall Institute China. With their support, 'Duck Lake' was transformed into protected wetlands and an outdoor environmental education center for WAB students.
