SCHOOLS FOR SDG
The Network of Schools for Sustainable Development (REDES by its Spanish acronym) is an initiative formed by Eco House Global partnered in alliance with civil society organizations, state and private bodies, as well as other agents with experience and knowledge in the field.
REDES works actively with school principals, teachers, and students from Argentina and LATAM, in a coordinated, efficient, non-partisan and constant manner. It achieves this through trainings, workshops, meetings, events, audiovisual content, and a range of didactic tools for socio-environmental and climate change education, both digital and in person.

FREE PLATFORM FOR SCHOOLS
All public or private schools, of any creed or orientation, who are interested in working towards sustainable development can access redes.global and obtain the free benefits of the platform.
Since education is the most powerful tool to transform reality, we decided to launch a super library with books, reports, audiobooks, and documentaries so everyone can freely share and access socio-environmental knowledge.
Education for Action channel is now available! You will find videos, texts and material about waste, global warming, environmental economics, water, energy, environmental law, among many others.
In the copy of each video you will find material for teachers to use in class!
Note: As devout promoters of citizen participation, we work with diverse civil society organizations, scientists, different parties, companies and influencers so that we can build this together.
WHY A SCHOOL NETWORK?
Eco House Global has continued to work with more than 80,000 students over the span of 5 years (from both public and private institutions), and actively participated in the drafting and promotion of national, provincial and local legislation linked to Education for Sustainability in Argentina. Based on its work, the organization concluded that the country (and the region) needs more networks that integrate educational institutions under the same line of action to address socio-environmental issues. The main emphases are on just and regenerative transition towards a new economic, ethical, supportive, collaborative, circular, self-sufficient system for the common good, as well as climate change adaptation and mitigation.
BACKGROUND: Conscious School Program (2016-2020).
SOCIO ENVIRONMENTAL UNIVERSITY
At the university you can find diplomas, extension courses, conferences, conversations, live events, workshops, and much more! Also, through Eco House TV, our online YouTube channel, you can enjoy a wide range of free content to continue training whenever and wherever you want.
Access to information is one of the keys to transform reality. Therefore, we launched a large socio-environmental database so that we can freely share and access knowledge. It is very useful for journalists, companies, governments, activists, schools and students!
NEW E-BOOK AVAILABLE!
“One of the most relevant voices of young Latin American socio environmentalism shares his vision on how to transform the world we inhabit and reverse the planetary crisis” (Penguin Random House).
”Apuntes de un Ambientalista” is now available! You can read it on your cell phone, tablet, PC or kindle (anywhere) or get the limited printed version (only in Argentina).
GENERAL REPORT ON CIGARETTE BUTTS
After two years of research, we share the first Comprehensive Report on Cigarette Butts from Latin American Civil Society.
We can take a simple cigarette butt to speak of our world and the profound social and environmental crisis we are in. A cigarette butt is not just another waste, it is a HAZARDOUS WASTE with which we coexist every day. We’ve reached a point where small actions, responsible consumption and good habits are simply not enough. It is essential to appoint people from the public and private sectors to tackle this issue comprehensively. The tobacco industry must be held accountable. Not only are they selling illnesses, but also hazardous waste that affects us daily.
