021Have you always wished you could contribute in some way towards making the air quality better or the environment more sustainable? Well’s here’s your chance to be part of something that is actually making a difference right here in Tianjin! And more importantly, it is student initiated!

022During the celebration of Earth Week in April 2018, the International School of Tianjin (IST) launched a green environment initiative that was led by a group of middle school students known as the “Green Team” and that initiative was called the “IST Green Team Solar Panel Project”. Backed by the school’s administration and the Board of Governors, this inspiring project aimed to install 380 photovoltaic solar panels on the roof of one of the two school buildings known as the Han Building, enough to run the lighting of the Han Building using clean, renewable energy!

023Donations started pouring in right from Day 1 and until September 12, 2018, 166 of the 380 panels have been paid for by the generous IST community and friends. There are 214 panels still awaiting donations. Meanwhile, over the summer break, the panels were installed on the roof of the Han Building and the Green Team Solar Panel Project is now officially generating clean, green electricity.


A monitor screen is continuously showing measurements of the difference this clean energy is making to the environment.


However, 200 plus panels still need donors. Each panel costs RMB 2000. Donors are recognized on a Donor Recognition Board as well as on the school’s website. Donor names are also shared on the school’s WeChat updates every week as well as the IST weekly newsletter.

The Green Team is very thankful for all the donations received so far and is requesting for more donors to come forward and take up the rest of the solar panels. Every donation matters. Whether you donate RMB 50 or buy one panel or 50 panels, the Green Team appreciates your contributions.


Corporate donors for the IST Green Team Solar Panel Project are very welcome. Please see below for the corporate sponsorship levels and benefits schedule.

schedulePlease note that the school can only issue receipts for tuition, and therefore donations must be given in the understanding that the School’s Finance Office is unable to issue official tax receipts (fapiaos). Companies committed to the cause can of course, choose to donate and pay tax on the donation.

Donor forms can be had from the School Reception or from the school’s Advancement Office or can be downloaded from the school website.
