Green Schoolyards America inspires and supports systems change to transform asphalt-covered school grounds into living schoolyards that improve children’s well-being, learning, and play, while strengthening their communities’ ecological health and climate resilience. The project works to change the paradigm for school ground design, use, and management so all children will have access to the natural world in the places they visit every day. Their work has a strong equity focus, and prioritizes locations that have the greatest need for educational, environmental, health, and open space improvements.
