The International School Grounds Alliance (ISGA) is a global network of organizations and professionals working to enrich children’s learning and play by improving the way school grounds are designed and used. The wellbeing of children and the ecological diversity of their learning landscapes are intrinsically linked. The ISGA aims to support all schools in making the most of the opportunities excellent school grounds afford.
2013 ISGA Conference
We are pleased to announce that the 2013 Nature School Conference, hosted by Evergreen in partnership with the ISGA, was a big success! Click here to read about the 2013 conference on Evergreen's website, and follow this link to the ISGA blog for a post conference summary and pictures of the event.
As a result of our September 2011 conference held in the San Francisco Bay Area, a collaborative video was made. This short film entitled, "Voices from the International School Grounds Movement - California, 2011", may be viewed here. It includes interviews with leaders in the school ground movement in seven countries, and photographs of some of their loveliest school grounds in action.
