Sustainability & Social Justice in K-12 Schools

Creating a culture of sustainability can instill joy and optimism at all levels in a K-12 school district. A commitment to sustainability from leadership can save costs and reduce ecological impacts; and enhance social, emotional, and physical health of all who work, learn and play in our schools. However, the potential impact on social justice is often overlooked. Join us to explore the benefits and barriers to implementing a framework at the intersection of leadership, environment and equity.
