Our mission at Sloan is to help architects, designers and engineers build more sustainable commercial and public buildings. Of those projects, the most important may be eco-friendly schools.

Why? Because — according to a recent study — “Children attending sustainably designed schools had significantly more pro-environmental attitudes and behaviors.” Building sustainable schools, in other words, helps create more environmentally aware adults.

Here are some of our favorite ideas for building schools that don’t just protect the environment today, but lay the foundation for the next generation as well.
