Every day, Americans go to school as students, teachers, staff, or administrators, in dilapidated buildings with unsafe toxins, dwindling budgets, and outdated technology. To overcome these limitations, the Center for Green Schools has launched a national action plan for educating for sustainability. The plan, which addresses both the curriculum and facilities management of schools, provides a series of actions to ensure that by 2040 every student graduating from a K-12 school will be equipped to shape a more sustainable future.
