Who We Are
The Green Schools Campaign is an initiative spearheaded by the Youth Action Committee of Climate Reality Project's LA Chapter. We have an incredible team of passionate young people from across the world, many of them members of the committee. You can learn about our team by clicking here.
The Climate Reality Project
Our parent organization, The Climate Reality Project, was started by Noble Laureate and former Vice-President Al Gore to empowers everyday people to become activists. We’re activists, cultural leaders, organizers, scientists, and storytellers who’ve come together to solve the greatest challenge of our time.
The Green Schools Campaign's mission is to transition every school in the world to 100% renewable energy by creating a diverse, global network of young activists ready to fight fossil fuel companies in their local communities.
We have a solid approach to transitioning schools to 100% clean renewable energy. It all starts with students, and then we guide them through building broad community support and pushing leadership while building an understanding of the local energy landscape. It's all outlined in our handbook, which you can find here.
There are so many institutions that could go green. Why are we focusing on schools? Well, schools are where the youth are. As the climate crisis worsens we will be affected the most. We have the power to make change at our schools, so let's do it!
