The purpose of this chapter is to provide an overview of green leadership approaches to school and learning and to highlight the relationship between green leadership and social and ecological justice. In green schools, social justice and ecojustice are understood as interdependent and thus, inseparable. Green leadership offers actionable ways for schools to step towards better care of people, communities, and our planet. Through a discussion of green leadership priorities and practices, this chapter seeks to detail how green perspectives align and advance school practices, particularly in pre-kindergarten to 12th grade (PK-12) schools that typically serve students aged 4-18 years. The work we draw on is primarily situated in our own research and experience within the United States. Benefits flow from expanding attention to include local environmental needs.
