The Green Schools Catalyst Quarterly, published by Green Schools National Network, is the journal of the green schools movement, recording our past successes and challenges, present activities and hopes for the future. This quarter’s content focuses on current work to strengthen environmental and sustainability literacy in students.

The June issue is full of great stories and information:

  • Kristin Cipollone, Rebecca Franzen and Susan Santone examine the potential for sustainability literacy to impact the achievement gap between high- and low-income students by reviewing evidence of how Education for Sustainable Development is currently being used in successful high-poverty schools.
  • A column by Tarrey Banks describes how the Project School in Bloomington, Indiana, is using food and food systems to create experiences for students that position them to solve problems and learn about sustainability and social justice.
  • Dr. Christine Schnittka of Auburn University and two of her graduate students review five classic books about sustainability education that are as relevant today as when they were first published.
  • The film Best Day Ever: Forest Days in Vermont Kindergartens is featured with a review that describes its focus on the power of nature play and delight in the development of young children.

The Center for Green Schools at USGBC is proud to be a distribution partner for Green Schools Catalyst Quarterly and serve on the editorial board. Access this exceptional content for free, and learn more about how our collective work is shaping schools.
