Green, Healthy, Sustainable Schools – TEDx

Great video by Jennifer Seydel, executive director of the Green Schools National Networks (USA), on the value of sustainable schools and education. She offers many tangible examples of existing structures that develop green initiatives in schools and districts around the United States. Certainly an interesting watch that offers a glimpse into future possibilities in healthy and sustainable education.

How gardening enables interdisciplinary learning – Edutopia

Superb example of a student initiative to develop a sustainable aquaponics system in his high school in California. This is a great model to show how interdisciplinary skills can actually enhance an educational setting, while allowing students to explore and develop their passions. Inspiring.
