Recycling Introduction: How can schools solve this kind of issue? Solution - 2010 to 2015
- Educational Excellence
- Student life and the whole child
- Community and Communication
- Media and Technology
- Facilities
- Managerial Excellence Strategic Plan LEED Boxes in classes
Plastic, paper, trash Recycling Electricity LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Introduced in 1998 by the US Green Building Council Ratification system which certifies buildings according to their sustainability Notable buildings include the Empire State Building, and Taipei 101 How can a school be involved in LEED? Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rethink! Reduce- Your electricity and water consumption

Reuse- Resources and amenities such as paper

Recycle- Anything and everything present in school which can be!

Rethink- Come up with new ideas to do things. It can be as big as creating a new trash collection system at your school or as small as using more efficient light bulbs. HVAC-Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning
Lighting EAB (Escola Americana de Brasilia) is an American International school established in 1961 by the American Embassy in Brasilia. 40 different nationalities currently study at EAB. The school's AC equipment, refrigerators, and ovens are below minimum sustainability standards EAB will go through expansion - 5 year plan. "Green" schools and buildings are a strength of the construction company EAB will employ to rebuild its campus. Issues we are Tackling... How can we help to create a sustainable, low impact school to serve future generations? The Big Question
- Ensure that facilities at EAB are safe, environmentally friendly, and cost efficient.
- Establish a long-term vision and plan for facilities that support all areas of the school’s program. FACILITIES Vision
Our facilities must be of a standard to support the school’s current programs and future aspirations.
Inviting and attractive facilities inspire a higher level of learning and engagement within the community, and we will take thoughtful and deliberate steps to enhance and expand these environments. It must go through the LEED checklist, which includes:
Sustainable sites
Water efficiency
Energy and Atmosphere
Materials and Resources
Indoor Environmental Quality
Innovation in Design (bonus) Issues at EAB The Stages of LEEDership The school/building is assessed and given a score out of 100 points.
Certified: 40–49 points
Silver: 50–59 points
Gold: 60–79 points
Platinum: 80 points and above Water Efficiency Energy and Atmosphere Materials and Resources Indoor Environmental Quality A sustainable site is a building plan that is balanced between effectively meeting the needs (e.g. classrooms, gym facilities, etc.), and conserving the surrounding environment.
It consists of the following sub-categories:
Natural vegetation
Non-harmful materials
Human health and well-being Water efficiency deals with the effective, sustainable usage and consumption of one of the most essential resources known to man. Biodiversity loss Climate change Our footprint Our recycling program Deforestation Paper recycling Water deficits Our construction program SUSTAINABLE SITES WATER EFFICIENCY ENERGY AND ATMOSPHERE MATERIALS AND RESOURCES INDOOR ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY Old Classrooms How they will be Materials and Resources is mainly focused on the "Reuse" and the "Recycle" sections of the 4 Rs:
Recycled Content
Building Reuse (walls, floors, roof)
Waste management Indoor Environmental Quality deals with the controlling of factors affecting the cleanliness of the air. It works to create a healthier environment through:
Tobacco control
Low-Emitting Materials
Thermal Comfort
Daylight/Views (natural lighting) Alternative Transportation
Maximize Open Space
Stormwater design-Quantity Control
Heat Island effect
Light Pollution Reduction
Site Master Plan Water efficient landscaping
Waste water disposal
Water usage reduction Building Reuse-Maintain Existing walls, floors, roofs
Construction Waste Management Materials Reuse
Recycled Content
Regional Materials
Rapidly Renewable Materials
Certified Wood Optimize Energy Performance
Enhanced Refrigerant Management
Measurement and Verification
Green Power Outdoor Air Delivery Monitoring
Low-Emitting Materials
Indoor Chemical and Pollutant Source Control
Control of Systems
Daylight and Views
Enhanced Acoustical Performance
Mold Prevention Our School We would like you to... 1. Separate into 5 small groups
2. Be in a group with at least 1 person you don't know yet
3. Introduce yourselves to your leaders
4. Log in to www.todaysmeet.com/eabgoesgreenintheleed Final Thoughts... Students SHOULD be involved in things that directly affect them. This is what we have been doing to make our school environmental, and we hope you can also implement some of these things to yours. A sMALL STEP MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE! LEED shows the ways in which a school becomes self-sufficient with a sustainable, durable and foolproof certainty. Our English-language school develops and supports the whole child in achieving his or her own potential. Through a differentiated, innovative learning experience, we cultivate responsible and contributing citizens, leaders, and environmental stewards with a strong foundation of academic excellence.
