Curriculum

BPS School Buildings as Living Laboratories: 

“’living laboratories’ merge academics and
campus facilities management to provide students with
real-world skills and, for the institution, a path to meet its
sustainability goals.”

-The Campus as a Living Laboratory

BPS School Buildings as the Third Teacher:

“There are three teachers of children: adults, other children, and their physical environment.”

-Loris Malaguzzi 

The framework is founded on the imperative that in order to be successful, sustainability requires a whole-system approach.

A Whole-School Sustainability approach requires individuals from across an organization to work together—it cannot be accomplished in a silo. This system framework is organized into the three components of schools: organizational culture, physical place, and educational program. Within these three components, total of nine principles have been identified.
