This event, the only national-scale conference of its kind, is being presented by the U.S. Green Building Council and Green Schools National Network. The Green & Healthy Schools Academy at the Green Building Alliance will serve as the host committee and point of contact for local partners, schools, and communities. The full conference lineup is still being finalized, but will feature breakout sessions on a variety of topics from the tactical to the transformative and include a student summit aimed at engaging and empowering youth and pre-workshop experiences at various partner locations around the region.
We sincerely hope that schools and communities in our region will make this opportunity available to their staff and students so we can collaboratively advance a future for our educational system that integrates sustainability values and concepts.
