EP5 - Green Schools with Barbara Martinez-Guerrero
Our children are leading the conversation on sustainability, and they need our support to make a collective impact. A recent NPR survey reported that 80% of parents and 86% of teachers support environmental education.Even with support for greener curricula on the rise, 55% of teachers still won’t teach environmental responsibility due to demanding core curriculum requirements and strenuous testing schedules.Dream in Green Executive Director, Barbara Martinez-Guerrero discovered a way to involve more South Florida parents, students, teachers and schools in our global efforts to curtail climate change by making the conversation - not about what’s taught in schools - but instead, about the choices we make based on what we value in life.In this episode, you’ll hear about how children are changing their family’s environmental impacts at home, while actively engaging 114 South Florida schools in the annual Green Schools Challenge that makes a large-scale measurable dent in our environmental footprint.Learn more about Dream in Green at: https://dreamingreen.org/Episode host: Daniel Puder, CEO of My Life My Power.Editing by: Edward DavisRecorded at the Center for Social Change.Follow us: https://facebook.com/center4socialchange/Questions or Comments?
