A National Plan for Sustainability Education Proposed

A key ally in our work for effective green education, the Center for Green Schools, has released a “National Action Plan for Educating for Sustainability”  that sets a goal for all 50 state boards of educations to have comprehensive green schools policies—including a graduation requirement around sustainability literacy—by 2040.


The Plan calls on all policy leaders and players to unite behind making sustainability education a part of every curriculum: education leaders at all levels, green schools and sustainability advocates, political and corporate leaders, and of course parents and students.  It outlines the steps needed to achieve that goal, with year-by-year milestones to reach.

nationalActionPlanThe Green Education Foundation applauds the CGS on their National Plan and stands ready to offer whatever support we can. We’re eager and ready to make full sustainability education a reality!

For more information and to download the National Action Plan for Educating for Sustainability, go to centerforgreenschools.org/nationalactionplan.

The Center for Green Schools is part of the U.S. Green Building Council and developed and released the plan in conjunction with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, an education publisher.
