It seems like a missed opportunity when we invest in greening a school without involving the students. If they knew how all the systems are connected, and how these systems are connected to their own academic performance and health, they would feel a lot more invested in their own school and learning.

I’m talking about the benefits of children being involved in energy auditing their own schools as part of my internship at the Collaborative for High Performance Schools.
