green-schoolyard-report-cover-258x333-pngGreen Schoolyards: A Growing Movement Supporting Health, Education and Connection with Nature is a newly released American report that describes the significant and diverse benefits of green schoolyards.

The free, 70-page report documents the journeys and lessons of green schoolyard programs across the country and is informed by a rich dialogue that has been taking place at the national and local levels about how to help children, families, schools, communities and our environment thrive.  It shares information and stories, as well as tangible steps communities can take to develop their own green schoolyards.

It is published by the Healthy Schools Campaign and Openlands and you can download it here.
