How do we define “green school?”

    A green school…

    • provides students with equitable access to healthy, clean, and energy-efficient learning spaces
    • cultivates student and staff awareness of and participation in environmental stewardship opportunities such as recycling, gardens and water conservation
    • provides social justice opportunities such as community access to green schoolyards, outdoor educational spaces and edible gardens
    • prepares students for the next generation of green, sustainable career pathways and good citizenship.
