Millbridge Green Team through Sustainable Jersey for Schools

The formation of a "green team" is the first step in establishing a school sustainability program. Green teams leverage the skills and expertise of team members to develop plans, implement programs, and assist with educational opportunities that support the creation of a sustainable school. Such entities can go by any name, but the role is the same: lead and coordinate the sustainability activities of the school.
