What do green schools actually teach? To answer this question, Green Building & Design (gb&d) enlisted the help of architect and educator Stacy Smedley and the USGBC’s Center for Green Schools to provide a glimpse into today’s most innovative schools and the minds of the people that make them possible.
On the Cover: Riffing on last year’s LEGO sculpture, we zoom out to illustrate our cover story’s main question: What are kids being taught about green buildings? After examining four public schools (from rural Virginia to the Seattle suburbs), we find that the building is just the beginning when it comes to learning about food, water, energy, and design.
Also Inside: Chicago’s Academy for Global Citizenship, Enrique Norten at Rutgers Business School, an update on Lady Bird Johnson Middle School, improving indoor air quality in classrooms, a Q&A with Victor “Trey” Trahan, and much more!
