Read the fall issue to learn about the latest progress in the green schools movement.

Each article in the latest issue of Green Schools Catalyst Quarterly, the green schools journal published by the Green Schools National Network, illustrates a future that intertwines sustainability and education. The fall issue, just released, recognizes the outdated nature of the conventional education system and offers a platform to transform education to support youth in sustaining the world.

This issue of the journal is packed with great content, including:

  • David Sobel paves a realistic path to shift the early childhood education system from the conventional, standardized methods to immersive, nature-based learning. Sobel explores the benefits of nature-based education and the potential of integrating the outdoors into the everyday learning for future generations.
  • Jean-Claude Brizard shares his insight about the ways that the physical space and the mission of Discovery Elementary School foster resilient and environmentally conscious students. One interview features a group of third-grade students who created an educational campaign to inform their peers about the importance of recycling and its environmental impacts.
  • Reilly Loveland sheds light on the world of Zero Energy Design in the school environment. Loveland provides an in-depth explanation of how zero energy schools are not only financially beneficial but can also create healthier environments.
