Who We are

Washington Green Schools is a nonprofit program supported by government agencies, individuals, businesses and foundations. Its robust educational resources are available to all public and private K-12 schools in Washington state.

 

How It Works

Schools form Green Teams that include students, staff, administrators, and sometimes parents. Working towards certification, Green Teams choose to tackle a project from a program category, then complete assessments, take action to make a lasting change, and measure their results. Certified schools receive recognition for their efforts and become part of the growing network of Washington Green Schools across the state.

 

Our Mission

The mission of Washington Green Schools is to challenge students and schools to create sustainable communities through educational experiences that transform school environments.

 

Our Vision

The vision is that every school will teach, model, and practice environmental sustainability and every child will learn and grow in a green and healthy school.
