Education. Action. Leadership. Transformation.
Addressing climate and conservation challenges, GSA's mission is to connect and empower schools worldwide to lead the transformation to global sustainability. The GSA believes that schools are hubs of communities worldwide that build resilience, transform markets, policy and behavior, and prepare the next generation of innovators.
Uniquely created by schools for schools to provide tools to manage change, the GSA is a global Peer-to-Peer Network of pre-K to grade 13 schools represented by sustainability coordinators, faculty, staff and students working together to solve climate and conservation challenges. Since 2007, the Alliance has grown to include 5,000 schools in 43+ U.S. states and 44+ countries.
Alliance schools collaborate locally and virtually to share and implement sustainable best practices, and promote connections between schools, communities, and the environments that sustain them. GSA does this by: creating forums; exchanging resources; offering original programs and place-based STEAM learning opportunities that integrate education and action and connect youth to nature, developed by Member Schools.
GSA envisions an equitable, healthy, abundant, safe and resilient, ecologically diverse world, connected through a global network of schools as transformational hubs of their communities. In this vision, schools collaborate across generational, geo-political and socio-economic boundaries to achieve a sustainable future that respects and protects all living things and wild places without depleting the resources on which they depend.
