The UNRWA is partnering with architect Mario Cucinella to build up to 20 “zero impact” schools in the Gaza Strip. The schools will include room for 800 students and will rely completely on renewable energy sources. Specifically, solar panels will be strategically placed and geothermal technology will provide additional heating and cooling.
