Every school in Illinois can start on the path towards a greener, more sustainable future. The Illinois Green Ribbon Schools program recognizes schools that have active programs, actions, and dedication to promote and educate about sustainability. Working in partnership with the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) and Illinois Board of Higher Education (IBHE)), Illinois Green Aliance is accepting applications from schools across Illinois.
