FOR SCHOOL DISTRICTS
Green Schoolyards America offers a suite of support services for school districts to assist them in developing comprehensive, sustainable, district-wide green schoolyard programs that improve children’s well-being, learning and play while contributing to the ecological health and resilience of their cities.
FOR THE PUBLIC
Green Schoolyards America offers public programming, presentations and resources to inspire and engage communities across the country and increase awareness and understanding of green schoolyard concepts, applications and possibilities.
Green Schoolyards America is a national organization that expands and strengthens the green schoolyard movement and empowers Americans to become stewards of their school and neighborhood environments. Our mission is to inspire and enable communities across the United States to enrich their school grounds and use them to improve children’s well-being, learning and play while promoting community engagement and contributing to the ecological health and resilience of cities. We believe that school grounds are uniquely positioned to enrich the daily lives of children and their communities, occupying both the geographic and social heart of almost every city across the USA and around the world.
Green Schoolyards America facilitates public dialogue about innovative research, design, education and policy and fosters partnerships between professionals and organizations across the USA and around the globe. Our programs promote the green schoolyard movement, build relationships that help it succeed and work to embed this paradigm shift in our existing institutions and national policy and regulatory frameworks.
