Local Leaders in Sustainability: Special Report

Local Leaders in Sustainability: Special Report from Sundance is a project developed by the American Institute of Architects, US Green Building Council, ICLEI Local Governments for Sustainability, and the Redford Center. The report outlines a national action plan that mayors and local leaders can use as a framework to develop and implement a green schools initiative. It also provides a comprehensive review of the benefits of green schools; a summary of local, state and federal policy solutions; leadership profiles of green school advocates; and case studies from both large cities and small communities. Together, these resources can serve as a roadmap to begin your journey to green your community's schools.

Our children deserve to go to schools that are designed, built, and operated to be full of clean air and sunlight and free of toxic materials and harmful chemicals. These green schools are energy efficient, which helps to lower utility costs and reduce waste. They conserve resources and preserve the surrounding habitats. Green schools showcase a community's commitment to its children and their future. Children, in return, learn from an early age the importance and benefits of acting as responsible stewards of their communities and the larger world.
