SF Chronicle Article on Schools and Global Warming Features Green Schools Initiative
San Francisco, CA (April 20, 2007) - The San Francisco Chronicle produced an informative special section on global warming today, featuring many things people can do to reduce their carbon footprint. One article focused on what schools can do, and highlighted a number of Green Schools Initiative's suggestions, including recycling, buying recycled products, promoting school gardens, reducing consumption via energy conservation and installation of solar panels, and - most importantly - engaging students' creativity in transforming the environmental health of their own schools. More research shows that hands-on experiential learning, like school greening environmental education activities, improves student achievement and enhances students' long-term civic involvement.
