Get Support on Your Green Schools Journey

Go green in your school by participating in the Illinois Green Schools Project, a program of Illinois Green Alliance! The Illinois Green Schools Project is a project-based challenge for K-12 schools to devise and implement creative no- to low-cost energy, water and waste initiatives, and sustainable practices.

During the 2020-21 school year, the Illinois Green Schools Project looked a little different. In the fall of 2020, we hosted a green schools webinar series for Green Schools Champions. In the spring of 2021, schools participated in the Illinois Green Schools Project from a virtual classroom or at the school building with support from a virtual Green Schools Mentor. Registration for the 2021-22 school year will open August 2. Learn more about the program below and check back soon for details about the 2021-22 school year!

Schools can participate no matter where they are on their sustainability journey.
