The Sustainable High Schools Project (2010)

The SHS Project is offered in partnership with the Sierra Youth Coalition, the youth branch of the Sierra Club.

Sustainable High Schools is adapted from SYC's successful Sustainable Campuses Project.

Both are youth-driven initiatives created to support school communities in envisioning, assessing and improving their level of ecological and social well-being.
