Building Student Environmental Leadership

Building Student Environmental Leadership for a Greener School System

The Baltimore Office of Sustainability engages students and teachers in environmental leadership through a range of programs, including mini-grants, internships, summits, and celebrations. The reach of this work has been tremendous, with approximately 70% of the city’s public schools, and thousands of young people, engaging with them since 2010. During that time, the number of city schools certified via a state-wide Green Schools program has more than doubled, and the City School Board has moved to adopt new environmental policies and standards. Attendees learned about the partnerships and programs that have helped enable this shift, and how you can replicate them for your school system.
