Education funding always seems to be last on the list for politicians (even though it should be the first). Schools in Croatia face the same problem, which has spurred one enterprising elementary school to come up with a plan. Ostrog Elementary School in Kastel Luksic, hopes to change the way schools in Croatia consume and produce energy through the installation of renewable systems, retrofitted buildings and a hands-on approach to environmental literacy among their students. If Ostrog’s crowdfunding campaign is successful, they could be a model for other schools to go off-grid, freeing up valuable funds for education.
