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

Every year, GSCE brings together the growing community of green school champions for two days of learning, connecting and collaborating to support our shared mission of advancing healthy, high-performing green schools where students learn how to sustain and improve the world around them.

Attendees engage in hands-on learning, participate in in-depth discussions and problem solving, and get inspired by speakers at the forefront of connecting sustainability, social justice and education. Two days of programming offers the opportunity for attendees to share ideas and successful strategies; learn about potential partnerships; and discover tools, services and products to help them succeed in creating schools that teach students about global sustainability—all in an environment that’s healthy for them, for their communities and for the Earth.

Green Schools Conference and Expo 2018

When: May 3–4

Where: Hyatt Regency Denver, Denver, Colorado
