It is widely understood that most people cannot comprehend a noise if it is not 15 decibels louder than the background noise level. Second, rooms that create more echoes due to hard materials can impair what acousticians call speech inteldeveloped a measurement for this called reverberation time (RT). A sound with a reverberation time of longer than 0.6 interior surface qualities of a room. Indoor ambient noise is not the only issue in classrooms, however. One important study in this area considered students status, students in that school performed as much as 20% lower on a reading test than children in another nearby school (G. W.

Miths & Facts Mith

Green schools do not improve student performance.

Fact

Green schools create inviting classrooms that lessen distractions and encourage student participation. Green schools have clean air, high-quality acoustics, temperature control systems, and use daylighting strategies to create welcoming learning environments that lessen distractions and encourage student participation.

Mith

Green schools do not improve student health.

Fact

Green schools improve health through safer materials and products and by circulating cleaner air. Green schools emphasize high indoor air quality by improving air circulation, removing toxic materials and products, and reducing CO2 emissions. Nurses at green schools report fewer clinic visits, students note less eye-nose-throat irritation, and there are fewer asthma-related incidents all of which contribute to improved student health and decreased absenteeism.

Mith

Green schools require construction and renovation standards that create a burden.

Fact

Providing opportunities to develop green job skills is not a burden. Setting green construction and renovation standards provides opportunities for people to develop needed skills for the new green economy.

EcoBiblioteca The Contest In the summer of 2010, the Romania Green Building Council and Biblionet co-organized a contest that proposed improving access to information technology and providing a sustainable renovation of an existing library; typical for a small Romanian community. In addition to helping a small community create a state of the art library, the contest results would showcase an exemplary sustainable building; environmentally responsible in its design, renovation and operation, and transfer best building practices to the local communities and other libraries around Romania.

Objectives C C P U

Promote sustainable principles and solutions that are easy to replicate for other communities. The project will utilize integrated design strategies delivering Implement a variety of both modern green technologies and historical methods of reducing energy use and negative environmental impact. These include but are not limited to: natural ventilation, solar passive design, green energy, minimization of the technical space, septic tank with natural

The teachers, parents and children of Transylvania College got together for the Annual Welcome Brunch, that this year had an environmental theme, to celebrate "Green Apple Day of Service." The event took place outdoors, in a beautiful wooden area. The children participated in an Origami workshop where they learned to make green apples out of recycled paper. All the apples adorned the Transylvania College tree, their school symbol.

Biobee Kindergarden

Play is an essential component of healthy development in children, and playgrounds provide an opportunity for children to develop motor, cognitive, perceptual and social skills. Unfortunately, playgrounds are often the sites of unintentional injuries. The leading cause of playground equipment-related fatalities is strangulation, and the majority of these deaths occur on home playgrounds. The event organized by Biobee Kindergarten had a simple purpose: to raise the level of awareness within adults to take care of parks. The action took place in the Center Park of Cluj City. Children brought apples with them and played games, made drawings and paintings.
