FSC certification for school in Canada: when forests become classrooms

FSC Newsroom - “Why wouldn’t we do this? Students here are learning about the responsibility that comes with taking a leadership role, about being accountable for their actions,” Shawnigan’s headmaster, David Robertson, says.

The school, which celebrates its centenary next year, is nestled among lakes and trees on Canada’s Vancouver Island. Most of its 490 students, who come from 28 countries, are boarders.

FSC certification of 64 hectares of the school’s 120-hectare campus came in December 2014 under Ecotrust Canada’s Forest Management Group certificate. It is likely the first and only school in the world to be FSC certified.
