The motivations and barriers that schools confront in considering green school practices will be discussed. Recent research supports the aims of green schools—reduced environmental impact, positive impact on health and wellness, and increased sustainability and environmental literacy—and is helping to make the case for action. Mrs. Heming will present the most current research alongside examples of successful schools who are making changes to building, operating, and teaching practices.
