SustainabilityChairperson: Barbara Hinson
VESTA’s newest standing committee, the Sustainability Committee was formed by members interested in looking at green practices and sustainability initiatives within Vancouver classrooms, within the district as a whole and in broader society. The committee strives to work with the sustainability contact at the school level:
- to encourage environmentally sustainable practices in schools;
- to communicate with members about topics related to environmental justice;
- to help VESTA members make links between issues of environmental justice and other social justice issues; and
- to consider, and potentially design and create projects, professional development opportunities, and lessons aids related to environmental justice topics for the use of VESTA members.
Please join your school’s Sustainability Committee to translate these ideas into action. Feel free to join the VESTA Sustainability Committee and/or attend meetings, held once a month, 4pm at the VESTA office.
