Abstract: 

The Minnesota Green Schools Coalition brings together the state's strongest advocates for our children to create a Minnesota infrastructure of green schools - healthy, high performance schools that are conducive to learning while saving energy, resources and money.

Through regular discussions on topics including new school construction, critical retrofits of existing facilities, green cleaning, metrics-based programs to track energy consumption and experiential learning opportunities for teachers and students, the Coalition is working to shape the classroom of the future and fundamentally change the way Minnesota students learn about the world around them.
