One-quarter of the American population goes to school – as students, teachers, staff and administrators – and they are often walking into outdated buildings badly in need of repair and burdened with airborne toxins, dwindling budgets, and outdated resources. The Center for Green Schools at USGBC was established in 2010 to drive the transformation of all schools into sustainable and healthy places to live, learn, work and play while educating a new generation of consumers and leaders – sustainability natives
– capable of driving global market transformation.
