What are the environmental issues facing California’s schools and the children and adults who spend their days in them? Schools in growing numbers are addressing issues that can be understood in four groups, or "Pillars," as in the graphic below. The Pillars deal primarily with facilities and resource use, and rethinking how schools approach waste and purchasing.
Understanding and addressing the issues described in the Four Pillars can help your green team make progress on the ecological and health challenges your school faces while heightening student engagement and achievement. Your green team can educate the school community about the environment while transforming your school into a healthy, vibrant ecosystem that can catalyze change in the broader community. Explore the different pillars and start making change today!
