An alliance working together to nurture and fortify sustainable school communities. It was established as Green Cup Challenge at Phillips Exeter Academy, turned into an inter-school challenge and then became an inter-school alliance. By now they have worked with 13k+ ‘sustainability champions’ from 8K+ schools in 48 US states and 91 countries. They encourage “healthy systems, active design, and progressive efficiencies in the school’s physical place; cultivate charismatic leadership, connection to place, and broad-based action to elevate a school’s educational program; foster interdepartmental learning to make sustainability integral to a school’s organizational culture.”
