Green Schools Conference | September 2022
The Green Schools Conference (GSC) is the only event to bring together all the players involved in making green schools a reality: people who lead, operate, build and teach in schools. Designed to educate, connect and inspire, attendees of the three-day in person conference will explore interdisciplinary content during general sessions, while also having dedicated time with peers to work through specific challenges, share best practices, and generate momentum to further green school actions across the country.
The 2022 program will address topics from environmental impact, health and wellbeing, sustainability literacy, equity and whole school sustainability. Whether you are a teacher, school or district staff, educational leader, parent, student, building industry professional or nonprofit partner, the Green Schools Conference is the place to learn new ideas, and connect with other passionate green school champions.
The Call for Proposals has been extended through May 9, 2022. Learn more and submit a session proposal.
This year’s GSC will be a dynamic and rejuvenating event featuring three days of programming, networking and inspiration. During the first two days, attendees will participate in specially-designed sessions and networking opportunities with their peers. Each professional cohort will be facilitated by the Center for Green Schools or the Green Schools National Network. During the third day of the conference, all attendees will come together for interdisciplinary programming, including breakout sessions, inspiring speakers, awards luncheon, and many networking opportunities.
