WHERE WE LEARN MATTERS
USGBC Louisiana believes every child deserves to go to a green school.
When you look at our schools today, you see outdated buildings in need of repairs, burdened with unsafe toxins, dwindling budgets and outdated resources - in place of opportunity and progress. By promoting the design and construction of green schools and by greening the operations and maintenance of existing schools, we can make a tremendous impact on student health, school operational costs and the environment.
High-performing schools result in high-performing students. We see an opportunity to educate a new generation of leaders – sustainability natives – capable of driving global market transformation.
