Educational buildings carry environmental messages to future generations. This makes them particularly important in terms of sustainability. Whether a university, community college or school, the buildings and their campuses have been one of the places where green innovation has taken place. Unlike offices where the focus is on occupant welfare and productivity, in this sector the aim is largely pedagogic. To have low-energy buildings sends an important message to the wider community as well as faculty staff and, most importantly, students. Hence, many of the green buildings on campus and many green schools are used in the curriculum to help develop environmental understanding and ecological respect.
