Advancing sustainable schools for all

Registration is now open for the Green Schools Conference & Expo 2018

May 3-4 | Denver, Colorado

The Green Schools Conference & Expo is the only national event to bring together all the players involved in making green schools a reality: people who lead, operate, build and teach in U.S. schools.

Two days of programming offer inspiring keynote speakers, informative workshops and breakout sessions and the chance to network with colleagues from across the country. This year, GSCE will be hosted in partnership with Rocky Mountain Green, a regional sustainability conference.
