We attempt to apply the Campus as a Lab principle to the Brooklyn College School of Education.
The City’s plan is a great opportunity for the City to reduce inequality in neighborhoods previously underserved by green infrastructure, as well as create new sources of ecosystem services such as water absorption and reduction of particulate matter and CO2 in the air. By planting trees only in neighborhoods that make the City look good rather than benefit communities that need them, or by planting trees that don’t maximize sustainability, the City could be wasting the 136 million in taxpayer dollars that it plans to spend on its tree planting plan.
If you want to research a climate change issue that affects your school community, this is for you! Campus as a Lab explores a project pushing sustainability in the classroom.

The battle against climate change is an ever-evolving struggle. To know how we can be more sustainable, I tested if planting more trees can be a starting point for progress.
