Coast to Coast: Leveraging parks and public spaces for schools during COVID-19

September 8, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


How can schools leverage greenspaces during COVID-19? How can parks and public spaces provide a safer space for outdoor learning? On Episode 17 of Coast to Coast, we’ll hear from Sharon Danks, CEO and Founder of Green Schoolyards America, a nonprofit that supports schools in using their outdoor areas more strategically to improve the well-being of children, their communities, and the urban environment. Green Schoolyards America is a co-founder of the National COVID-19 Outdoor Learning Initiative, which is helping school districts across the country use outdoor spaces as essential assets they reopen with physical distancing measures in place.

“Coast to Coast” is a weekly Knight Foundation show. Hosted by Lilian Coral and Lilly Weinberg, Knight directors in the Community and National Initiatives program, the program will take a weekly deep dive into cities and the important ideas and insights that move them forward.
