USGBC Chapter Green Schools Committees
Across USGBC’s national chapter network, volunteer advocates are leading campaigns to transform local schools, providing their communities with on-the-ground support as local experts and providing a direct link to the programs and initiatives of the Center for Green Schools.
USGBC Chapter Green Schools Committees raise community awareness about the benefits of green schools by working with parents and teachers, students and school boards, administrators and city officials. They host community events in cities and towns, connect with elected officials, provide technical expertise, share their initiatives with the media, and much more.
Working together, the Center for Green Schools and the Chapter Green Schools Committees are equipping, empowering and engaging communities in the green schools movement.
Green Schools Committees are taking on a variety of initiatives, and as a result are attracting members from across their communities. These volunteers are architects, designers and building engineers, as well as educators, environmental advocates, local business owners and parents.
Individuals can join USGBC Chapters and their Green Schools Committees to raise awareness in their communities; share strategies, resources and best practices; tour green building projects and more. Find the Chapter and Committee near you and join the movement today!
A note to our friends outside the U.S. – While the USGBC Chapter network is only in the United States and U.S. territories, there are still ways to connect to the green schools movement outside the U.S. You can connect with organizations and individuals worldwide through the Global Coalition for Green Schools, and get involved (in the U.S. and abroad) in Green Apple Day of Service.
