Global Lessons on Greening School Grounds

September 4, 2024 2pm

Webinar with Brenda Kessler, Project Manager, Children & Nature Network

There is growing momentum worldwide to scale school ground greening as a sensible and thoughtful approach to increase climate resilience, enhance biodiversity, improve health and education outcomes, and strengthen communities, especially for those most impacted by systems of inequity and environmental injustices. Mounting scientific evidence suggests that transforming school grounds into nature-rich environments is a powerful tool to achieve multiple benefits. Such school grounds improve physical and mental health, social and cognitive skills, creativity, and academic performance for students. They also contribute environmental benefits such as reduced heat in warming climates, reduced pollution, and water conservation.

The Greening School Grounds & Nature Based Education project engages global leaders and practitioners to build networks of like-minded organizations and individuals to identify and deliver scalable strategies to support the worldwide movement of school ground greening. In this webinar you will hear from three different municipalities from across the globe and how they've scaled greening school ground efforts that support learning, playing, community engagement, and climate resilience.
