Sustainability emphasizes the systemic thinking that makes connections between economy, society and ecology. Sustainability education is a holistic process for integrating curricula so that students experience and understand the relationships between school and the larger world, and begin to see how individual choices can have a global impact.
Sustainability education and green schools also promote energy savings, environmental conservation, and hands-on learning that help students design and promote sustainable practices, such as green school yards, waste reduction campaigns, and walkable and bikeable communities.
ProgressED will energize your "green team," integrate sustainability efforts with curricula, coordinate professional development, document your progress with sustainability education, and promote your success to the community.
Whether you'd like to create a green classroom, or a district-wide sustainability initiative, ProgressED can help!
