This program is easy and exciting for kids to run!
And it does not involve new curriculum. Your school is probably already very active in taking environmental action. The Green School program provides recognition and focus to that effort. Build a strong school image in the community. Materials such as certificates, the trophy and the banner can be presented in special ceremonies involving local dignitaries and the media.
This program encourages students to be environmentally responsible and to take personal action at school and with their families. Classes undertake projects to communicate about or to enhance the environment. Classes then log their project results and report them to SEEDS. By keeping records of their achievements, schools gradually work towards 100 projects to become recognized as an environmental Green School. Some schools go on to achieve Jade status (250), Emerald status (500) and ultimately Earth School with 1,000 completed projects. There are 246 Earth Schools in Canada.
