As part of our plan to accelerate the greening of Chinese consumer behavior, we chose the YK Pao School in Shanghai to be our “Green School Showcase.” Using materials from pavilions at the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai, we built a brand new campus for the YK Pao School.

How We Went About Inspiring A Circular Economy in China

We Connected the Top Sustainability Experts Together 

Creating A Symbol of Reuse

The secondary school opened in Fall 2011 in Shanghai's Songjiang district. A permanent reminder of this project was built into the school, and the case will serve to educate YK Pao students on the importance of working together to save the environment. The sustainability spirit of Shanghai Expo 2010 was seeded everywhere across the school’s 40,000 square meters of space - in classrooms, dormitories, the library, offices, and outdoor garden areas. It stands as a physical demonstration of reuse for all YK Pao students.
