Every school in Pennsylvania can start on the path towards a more green and sustainable future. Whether a school district is considering a renovation or construction project, reviewing operations and maintenance practices, planting a school garden, or updating curriculum-there is an opportunity to make our schools more cost-efficient, environmentally friendly and healthier places of learning.
We believe that the entire educational experience should include green and sustainable practices. This includes the transportation to and from school, the buildings where our students learn, the energy being used in our schools, the food being served in our cafeterias, and the curriculum that is taught in the classrooms.
There are many ways that schools can become more green and sustainable, and each step forward is a step in the right direction. We hope you will get started on the Path, and we look forward to hearing about your success.The Center for Schools and Communities will provide a live online session titled “Transforming Schools with Project Learning Tree (PLT) GreenSchools!
