Why Do Green Schools Matter?

Can a district that makes a commitment to sustainability really expect to see a return from its efforts?

For decades, Dr. Tony Knight of the Oak Park Unified School District has remained focused on implementing curriculum and facility programs that create healthy learning environments and help students gain first-hand knowledge of the power of individual action.

As the 2015 Green California Schools and Community Colleges Summit approaches, it seems appropriate to share a previously-published Green Technology interview with Dr. Knight. You’ll be inspired by the progress his district has made, and the benefits its efforts have brought to the district, students, parents and the community. You can read the interview here.

“I have found the Summit to be an incredibly valuable ‘Idea Starter,'” Dr, Knight says. “Every year I attend, I come back to my District with either a new product to try or a new concept to explore.  The Summit attracts some of the best minds in school environmental education and facilities fields.”

He’ll be at the Summit, if you’d like to talk to him in person. We hope to see you there! You can register here.
