Advancing Climate Action in Schools

Recording: Advancing Climate Action in Schools, Date TBA

With nearly 100,000 public schools across the country, America’s schools are among the largest consumers of energy in the public sector, operate the largest mass transit fleet, sit on over 2 million acres of land, and serve over 7 billion meals each year. Decarbonizing our schools also creates opportunities for the over 50 million students in school to learn about climate solutions firsthand, better preparing the rising generation to advance a sustainable future.
