Frequently Asked Questions
What about countries outside the United States?
We're an international campaign. Any student, anywhere, can join us! Even if you don't speak English, we'll do our best to accommodate you.
How big a commitment is this?
When do I have to decide if I want to sign up?
We're not going away anytime soon. Transitioning schools to renewable energy is a long process, and if you need to take some time to think about whether you're ready to sign up, we totally get it. Don't rush this.
What does Los Angeles have to do with anything?
The Green Schools Campaign is an initiative from the Los Angeles chapter of Al Gore's Climate Reality Project. We started the campaign by working with local schools, but now we've expanded internationally.
How are you going to convince the administration?
We have a plan. Our handbook outlines the process that we go through, customized to fit the individual needs and situation of each school. To convince the school, we can harness the lobbying power of an entire global community, find grants, hold strikes, whatever it takes.
What's an example of a in-progress school?
Students are currently working hard to transition the Long Beach Unified School District (LBUSD) to 100% renewable energy.
