It's not easy being green! - Kermit T. Frog   Home K-12 Schools Why Focus on K-12 Schools

 

As institutions dedicated to the education of the nation’s youth for a healthy, prosperous and sustainable future for society, K-12 schools have the most influence when addressing the issue of climate change.  Together with the help of the Institute for Sustainable Energy, many local schools have learned to:

  • act as communities to educate and influence the local community;

  • expand the role of K-12 schools in combating climate change;

  • reduce emissions of carbon dioxide and other harmful gases;

  • establish a network of local school communities working together toward a common goal;

  • serve as learning laboratories to set an example of sustainability for other K-12 schools, acting as the leading edge of change. 
  • To the left is a guideline which includes 12 areas of focus that can be used by K-12 schools to develop a comprehensive approach to school-wide sustainability.
