2023 Green Schools Conference – Feb 27 – Mar 1
Posted by GreenFutures on December 20, 2022
The School District of Philadelphia, Fairmount Water Works , Philadelphia Water Department and The Cloud Institute will be presenting at the Green Schools Conference (GSC), taking place February 27- March 1, 2023, in New Orleans, Louisiana. We hope to see you there!
GSC is an annual event and is the only event to bring together all the players involved in making green schools a reality: the people who lead, operate, build and teach in our nation’s schools. This year’s event will have inspiring speakers and educational sessions, and early bird registration discounts end on January 13, 2023.
At this year’s conference, you will experience a new, immersive conference format designed to facilitate meaningful peer-to-peer conversations and engaging interdisciplinary learning. The conference kicks off with two days of peer- to- peer focused learning designed specifically for each stakeholder group contributing to the green schools movement: educators and school leaders, school district capital and facilities staff, non-school-based professionals interested in school design and construction, and green school advocates, government and community partners. Each track is carefully curated to meet the unique needs of its attendees and includes focused time to connect meaningfully with like-minded peers to fully leverage the collective knowledge within this community and develop insightful strategies. The final day of the conference is a full day of interdisciplinary content and education sessions covering important topics like improving indoor air quality, reducing waste, advancing decarbonization, cultivating environmental literacy, improving districtwide partnerships, implementing social and emotional health strategies, and amplifying student-led climate action initiatives.
