Terra Verde Discovery School in Norman will host schools from across the state for the Oklahoma Green Schools Summit on Wednesday, May 10, 2023. The Summit is the largest event focused on greening efforts in Oklahoma schools.

Fifty-six students, representing nine different schools, will attend and present the accomplishments of their individual school with support from their teachers and green team leaders. In addition to the student presentations, there will be educational, hands-on activities, a “Mother Earth” play, Terra Verde students will give tours of their campus, and information from many organizations will be available for schools interested in greening efforts.

The Oklahoma Green Schools program is a statewide effort to bring free, environmental expertise to schools with the goal of making them greener and healthier places to learn, while conserving resources and saving money. Green Schools offers hands-on, inquiry- based investigations in energy, environmental quality, school site waste and recycling, and water that helps students be school energy auditors and leaders.
