ALI’s Sustainable Schools Anti-Idling Project aims to build a network of collaborators to reduce vehicle idling on school property in the Greater Cincinnati area. The long term goal is to build a sustainable infrastructure for anti-idling and improvement of health for children with asthma.

ALI coordinates the Sustainable Schools Task Force. Its purpose is to offer school districts strategies and program options for long term sustainability thereby saving resources and money and educating the next generation of environmental stewards. The Sustainable Schools Task Force uses real world problem-solving tied to Green STEM careers to move the people and the program forward so that energy savings becomes an asset and schools can sustain their innovations. Cash strapped districts can particularly benefit from such a strategic approach.
ALI offers Green STEM Fairs as introductions to green technologies and careers and Eco-Mentoring. a ten to twenty week hour long series of workshops for student clubs or a class covering green technologies in more depth.
