We envision schools as the hubs of sustainable change in the 21st century. In order to make this happen, we provide schools with the programs and services to embed sustainability into the academic and operational fabrics of the organization.
Stage 1: Evaluate & Plan
Every vision begins with a foundation and plan. During Stage 1, SmartRoots Global evaluates where sustainable change is needed most within the organization to develop a sustainability strategy to address the SR7.
Stage 2: Communicate & Train
We believe that sustainability impacts all levels of schools. A cohesive approach among stakeholders helps to leverage effort, resources, and outcomes. As schools grow in their commitment to sustainability, everyone must be on the same page – staff, teachers, students, and community members.
Stage 3: SR7 Projects & Initiatives
During stage 3, schools begin addressing the SR7 dimensions to sustainability through projects and initiatives using an integrated approach. Our program gives schools two (2) years to implement a project or initiative to address each of the seven dimensions.
Stage 4: Accreditation
The process of “creating sustainability” is continuous for schools and teachers as we assist in progress evaluation, strategy and goal development, and the communication of success.
