North Vancouver School District is ‘the natural place to learn” and GreenScreen is a place to Learn, Share and Grow.
NVSD is an environmental leader in its open mandate to take into account environmental considerations in all facets of its operations. NVSD’s leadership is evident in both its 10 Year Strategic and 3 Year Operating Plans.
The GreenScreen site assists all NVSD community members to celebrate our work together in support of the broad high level goal,
”Provide Leadership in Environmental Education and Sustainability Practices.”
NVSD’s Sustainability Leadership Team
The Sustainability Leadership Team first met in 2008, and since then has grown to include many partners. We are proud say the Team includes representatives from the parent community, student community, School Board Trustees, Teachers, Support Staff, school based Administration and school board Management.
Collaboratively, we promote and enhance NVSD’s sustainability initiatives in all areas of environmental sustainability. Most notably, our Green Fair is held the Tuesday of Earth Week and is aimed at showcasing and sharing ideas.
This year, the Green Fair will be held at Sutherland High School on Tuesday April 17. 2012. Registration is open to individual students, student groups, school based teams, and outside agencies with something to share with the green minded education community.

Our Mandate and Vision Statement
“North Vancouver School Distict’s Sustainability Leadership Team will build capacity amongst staff, parents and students to enable them to view themselves as the authors of their own environmentally sustainable future.”
The above statement lies at the core of the SLT’s mission. In particular, this will require a paradigm shift in the way stakeholders approach and enable student leadership in our school district. In collaboration with all stakeholders, we strive to:
- Develop suggestions for school and district based practices to attend to environmental concerns
- Make recommendations to the Board of Education that would create a paradigm shift in all stakeholders’ behaviors towards sustainable practices.
- Develop policy which will support school and district based Sustainable practices.
- Establish a unified vision on the part of all stakeholders with regards to environmental sustainability.
