The Center for Green Schools, an affiliate of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), is now offering research and best practices for creating green schools. A selection of these recourses are available for continued education hours through a program called “Education @USGBC.”
The resources are offered for free through on the enter's resources page and the associated quiz and continuing education hours are now also available through a subscription and for individual purchase.
The resources cover topics including the whole school sustainability framework, behavior-based strategies for energy savings in schools, developing policy solutions.
Resources that are now eligible for credit include:
• Using the Whole-School Sustainability Framework — This report defines each principle and uses literature from multiple disciplines to illustrate how each principle manifests in a school and why it is critical to successful sustainability.
• National Action Plan for Educating for Sustainability — Based on a 2013 convening, this report outlines a national action plan toward environmental and sustainability literacy for all students by 2040, through collaboration, alignment and large-scale implementation.
• Power Down: Behavior-Based Energy Conservation in K-12 Schools — This toolkit follows the experiences of five public schools that have reduced electricity use by 20 to 37 percent through behavior-based strategies alone, looking to these schools as models for others and examining common strategies.
