WGSN offers several professional development opportunities throughout the year including the No Teacher Left Inside, Weekend Warrior Workshops, and the Youth Summit.
Every school has the potential to be a green school. By using the Green Print for a Green School core practice areas as a road map, a school or school district can work towards continually integrating green practices and infusing a comprehensive green culture to enhance student health and learning while saving resources and establishing behaviors to sustain life on this planet.
The network is open to all schools! You can sign up as a school or an individual and start receiving email updates! Check out the new map of schools. Updated March 2012.
Many schools in the WGSN take their students outside each week to develop environmental literacy. When schools participate in the FIELD Corps, they are paired with a biologist who mentors the teacher through leading field days with the students. Field biologists are trained in biological sciences, providing a working knowledge of ecological processes that are passed to the students and staff. This knowledge and skill set is a resource for teaching staff to apply learning outside of the classroom with confidence and understanding.
