WGBH is kicking off Earth Week with the premier of their new documentary, Growing Greener Schools, this Sunday (April 18th) at 1:30pm. Growing Greener Schools spotlights schools (from elementary schools to colleges) across the country who have taken leadership roles in on-campus sustainability. The companion website is filled with educational materials (videos, a checklist, and a teacher's guide) to assist schools who want to join the movement.
On a local note, the film spotlights some of Harvard's environmental initiatives, including dorm makeovers, composting, and organic landscaping (full disclosure: I work for Harvard's Office for Sustainability).
If you're stuck inside because of the rain tomorrow, check out the film and get inspired! Let me know if you work with you school to make it more sustainable.
