With a $100,000 grant from Open Society Foundation for Albania, ASU’s Rob and Melani Walton Sustainability Solutions Initiatives are assisting Albania’s transition to sustainable education. Using ASU’s extensive resources, such as experts in green building and international development, the Walton Initiatives team will complete a cost-benefit analysis of energy efficiency in Albania's public schools.
This analysis, conducted by the Walton Initiatives’ Global Sustainability Solutions Services in partnership with the East-West Management Institute, will be shared with international donor organizations, private investors and the Albanian government. Not only will the analysis direct retrofitting investments, it will support the Albanian Ministry of Education’s initiative to establish an Education Excellence Fund - a program to encourage and finance innovation in schools.
