How A Green Daycare Is Raising Green Kids

The children born into one of Metro Vancouver's newest communities will live and learn in homes and schools that are at least LEED Gold. Their childcare centre, part of SFU's UniverCity, celebrates its first anniversary this month, and is expected to be certified as Canada's first Living Building - which is to say, the first building with a zero environmental footprint. These are youngsters who will believe, absolutely, that it is possible to live in a sustainable world because they will have spent their whole life in a sustainable community.
