At the Center for Green Schools, we believe that everyone, from the kindergartner entering the classroom to the Ph.D. student performing research in a lab, should have the ability to learn in a green school.

Green schools reduce the environmental impact of buildings and grounds, have a positive effect on student and teacher health, and increase environmental literacy among students and graduates. With these three areas of impact as the foundation for our work, we connect with schools and campuses to achieve our vision of green schools for all within this generation. Working directly with teachers, students, administrators, elected officials and communities, we create programs, resources and partnerships that transform all schools into healthy learning environments.

Here are some ways you can get involved today: nominate a green schools rockstar for the Best of Green Schools 2016, apply to attend the School Sustainability Leaders Summit taking place this March in conjunction with the 2016 Green Schools Conference and Expo, which you can register to attend now.
