Members well-being

EcoCampus is also a human-centered approach, placing the students at the core process of change toward sustainability that is connected to the real issues in their communities. The Eco-Committee is composed of a majority of students including the Chair and Vice-Chair.

Green Days

Together the students and staff organize events to clean strategic areas of Siem Reap to fight plastic pollution and protect biodiversity. In addition, many other awareness events are organized to familiarize the local community with multiple sustainability efforts such as gender equality, waste management, and more.


Resource consumption

We apply various strategies to reduce our electricity consumption, food waste, and plastic use. The students actively design and carry on activities to raise awareness and enable positive change. For example, the distribution of reusable metal water bottles to all EHT members.

Water Collection

Rainwater is collected and filtered to be re-used for cleaning purposes and to provide drinking water across the campus.

Plastic Free Initiative

EHT implements a zero single-use plastic policy and works to reduce its plastic use by raising awareness and embracing green practices in our supply chains.

Vegetable Garden

Production of monthly green vegetables that are used for consumption at our canteen and training restaurant.

Inclusion of the organic garden in the teaching curriculum to better understand the whole food supply chain from farm to plate. 

Green Flag Award

EHT is the first TVET school to get the International Green Flag award by FEE, a recognition for positive environmental and social action.
