Smart Regions: greener and smarter schools in Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Montenegro
Schools are becoming greener in Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Montenegro thanks to EU cohesion policy’s support. The latest episode of Smart Regions focused on the Smart Schools project, a cross-border scheme which aims to reduce pollution and promote renewable energies. A total of seven Bosnian and Croatian schools and colleges have renovated their buildings to make them more energy efficient. Smart Schools' total budget is €1.6 million, 85% of which is financed by the European Cohesion Policy. The awareness-promoting initiative has reached 105 schools and 29,000 pupils.
