About the International School Grounds Alliance

The International School Grounds Alliance (ISGA) is a membership organization, bringing together leaders in the fields of school grounds use, design and management.  Membership is free. We invite you to join the ISGA to declare your commitment to creating and caring for these special environments that support children and young people’s learning, play and well-being. You will also be ensuring that the ecology and biodiversity of school grounds remains high on the agenda of those who influence and pay for school ground design around the world.
