Hot Off the Presses! The Center for Green Schools 2011 Report Card
The Center for Green Schools just finished its first infographic, which depicts our work since being founded in September 2010, highlighting our reach, resources and really inspiring events.
Though the U.S. Green Building Council has worked to advance market transformation in the education facilities sector for years, the creation of the Center marked a moment in time when USGBC accelerated its commitment to green schools by supporting the audiences and activities that will drive us toward our vision of green schools for everyone within this generation. As this infographic shows, the Center focuses its work around engaging, equipping and deploying the people who make the case, make the decisions, get things done and partner with us.At the same time, we take a holistic approach by impacting the three components of green schools: buildings, community and curriculum.
To us, proof that we are making good on our bold mission to make green schools a mainstream message is captured in this infographic. Our eight programs catalyze change at the K12 and Higher Ed level in every state in the country, and the LEED green building rating system serves as a means of transforming building stock, teaching students sustainability and preparing students, teachers and staff for 21st century jobs.
How are we doing this, and in such a short amount of time? Check out the infographic yourself for some of our milestones, measurements and memorable moments!
