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

Washington Green Schools challenges students and communities to create a sustainable region through educational experiences that transform school environments.

 

Our Vision

Every school in Washington will teach, model, and practice environmental sustainability, serving as centers for change throughout the region.
