The objective of this Sustainable Schools Guide is to provide you
with information that will allow your school system to make
informed decisions regarding energy and environmental issues that
are important to your school, community, and country.
The concept of sustainable development reflects an understanding
that we must meet the needs of the present without compromising
the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. A
Sustainable School not only embraces the concept of sustainability
but is, in itself, a teaching tool for sustainability.
