The Go Green Initiative (GGI) is the nation's fastest growing, fully comprehensive environmental action plan for schools. GGI is a grassroots program that works to involve school staff, families, businesses and local governments in the common goal of protecting human health, specifically children's health, through environmental stewardship. GGI aims to involve students at every level and unite all stake holders in creating a culture of conservation on campus. Since its inception in one Tri Valley elementary school in 2002, GGI has been implemented in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, along with schools in Canada, Mexico, Asia, Europe and Africa. There are currently over 1.5 million students and teachers in registered Go Green schools. The Go Green Initiative has also been adopted by numerous State PTA Boards and endorsed by both the National School Boards Association and the National Recycling Coalition.

In 2005, AVI created a partnership with The Go Green Initiative, creating a grant program to help Dublin's public schools fund projects (e.g. recycling, water conservation, school gardens, etc.) that improve students' lives and help teach them to be responsible stewards of our environment. Campuses measure their progress towards their environmental goals and then briefly summarize their accomplishments on GGI's project tracking website. The results are then reviewed by the City of Dublin GGI program administrator. Qualifying Dublin schools can receive hundreds of dollars per quarter. Funding is for environmentally-related projects.

Many Dublin public schools are currently participating in the program and reaping the rewards. For more information about Dublin's GGI Program or to submit your quarterly report, please visit www.gogreeninitiative.org. You can also contact the City of Dublin at 925-833-6650 if you have questions about the program.
