GreenPrint for Becoming a Green, Healthy, and Sustainable School

In the green schools movement, we talk a lot about creating healthy learning environments, spaces that are water and energy efficient; have superior indoor air quality; and produce little to no waste. We also talk a lot about how we can use these spaces as learning tools to teach students 21st century skills and how to be better environmental and community stewards. However, in our attempts to hold up sustainable school environments as models of the future, we often neglect to consider the third pillar of a green, healthy, and sustainable school: the health and well-being of students and staff.
