We have developed all these resources for the schools participating in our Climate Action Accelerator Program. We are also openly sharing these in the hopes that other schools will find them useful. We strongly believe that this is no time for proprietary information and password-protected webpages – we must all put our best efforts forward and share our learning. If you improve upon these resources, we would ask you to consider sharing your experience with us so that we can reflect your learning and improve these for others.
The Strategic Framework For High-Impact, Whole-School Climate Action
This framework is the foundation for the Climate Action Accelerator Program. It provides a systems approach to developing a whole-school climate action plan for a school community. It is based on three dimensions – Organizational Culture, Collective Learning, and Physical Place, all informed by a Compelling Vision for the future. The framework is set in the context of the imperative to solve the climate crisis.
Each dimension is composed of strategies essential for successfully creating and implementing a high-impact, whole-school climate action plan. All these strategies should be combined to meet the unique needs of each school at different stages along their journey to a just, beautiful, net-zero future.
