Welcome to the new green council homepage. We will be constantly updating this website with key information on the Green Council movements as well as the future goals we are striving towards.

The Green Council is a student-led council with community wide membership including students, teachers, administrators, staff and parents. It's task is to provide guidance and direction (using the Eco-Schools 7-step methodology) for our school's sustainability and environmentally oriented courses, clubs and activities. The diagram below shows the overview of the relationship between the Green Council, the Eco-Schools program (externally) and the various curricular and co-curricular initiatives/opportunities at ISKL.
