The Forest at School: Implications for learning
February 10, 2016

William Sullivan, University of Illinois

Recent research suggests that views to green infrastructure might people smarter - at least temporarily. How can this be? Smarter how? For how long? Does everybody benefit or only some people? In this webinar, William Sullivan will address these questions and add new reasons to invest in urban forests. He will explain how views to urban forests improve test scores and show how even if you aren't taking a test anytime soon, a view to green will improve your thinking.
