The 2018 Green Schools Conference and Expo (GSCE), to be held from May 3-4 in Denver, Colorado, promises to feature inspiring speakers, including education, environmental and business leaders who will share best practices to advance green schools for all.
This year, GSCE will be hosted in partnership with Rocky Mountain Green, USGBC Colorado’s regional sustainability conference. This new partnership will bring together experts from diverse industries within the green building world for a unique opportunity for collaboration and networking.
Janine Benyus, co-founder of Biomimicry 3.8 and The Biomimicry Institute, will speak in a combined keynote for both GSCE and Rocky Mountain Green. Benyus is known worldwide for her seminal book, "Biomimicry: Innovation Inspired by Nature," and for her work shaping the practice of biomimicry as an innovation tool to solve some of humanity’s most pressing challenges. In "Biomimicry," she names an emerging discipline that emulates nature’s designs and processes to create a healthier, more sustainable planet. Since the book’s 1997 release, Benyus has evolved the practice of biomimicry, speaking around the world about what we can learn from the genius that surrounds us.
