The Green Strides Webinar Series is a new component of the US Department of Education (ED) that is being conducted in parallel with the Green Ribbon Schools recognition award (ED-GRS). While the award spotlights a few high performers in reducing environmental impact and costs, improving health and providing well-rounded education that prepares graduates for the 21st Century and to communicate their best practices, the webinar series is designed to connect more school communities and state and local education officials to existing federal resources.
The webinars are hosted by ED, in conjunction with numerous other federal agencies, and provide introductions to various useful programs, standards and resources in the areas of facilities, health and environment. The full 2012-2013 Green Strides Webinar Series will be published on the ED site this summer. If you wish to keep informed of developments with the series, be sure to connect with ED-GRS on Facebook and sign up for the ED-GRS newsletter.
