Green Committee Toolkit
A green committee is a group composed of staff, students and parents which engages the school community through events, initiatives and projects. A committee to promote awareness of environmental issues in transportation, air quality, energy conservation and waste management may already exist in your school. For those schools which do not have a green committee, Smart Commute Hamilton can provide assistance in creating one. A green committee does not have to be very formal or time consuming. It can involve only a few members of the school community who help to ensure that the school is aware of environmental initiatives, including cycling, as a part of sustainable transportation. The committee could also encourage recycling initiatives, energy conservation, walking and healthy lifestyles. Our Green Committee Toolkit can be made available for your school to help you get started.
