Reviews and Testimonials

Citing a growing body of evidence that green school grounds contribute to children’s physical, mental, social, and spiritual well-being, as well as foster a strong sense of citizenship and leadership among school participants and the community, Chan, Mense, Lane, Richardson, and their expert contributors propose to broaden and deepen understanding of environmental accountability in educational organizations, and to apply this understanding to issues of form, function, and future in building and sustaining green schools.

– ProtoView Book Abstracts (formerly Book News, Inc.)

The highlight of the book relates to its extensive exploration and examination of the very important concerns in green school construction, which involves effective leadership, planning, implementation, resources management, and evaluation of impacts. The book presents a compelling vision for a sustainable future through creating a great learning environment for our future generations. I highly recommend this book.
