Event Description

Green School Summit for Building Industry Professionals

Dive deeper into the future of green schools through an engaging dialogue about how design should effectively respond to and enable sustainability education and how building industry professionals can help schools live into the promise of greener schools.

This educational summit is hosted by the Center for Green Schools and the Green Schools National Network.

Session 1: Design for Resilience

The COVID-19 pandemic has stretched the resilience of our communities and our buildings, and it has highlighted the importance of planning for future stressors. How can the building industry respond to support the education sector? This panel will provide reflections on how regenerative design can lead to increased resilience and will share specific examples from the field to give participants tools for implementation.

Session 2: Design for Social Equity

The past year has seen a widespread reexamination of how racial injustice and inequity has impacted every facet of our lives and the lives of our communities. Schools around the country are taking a renewed look at how they are acting against the forces of racism and inequity and supporting and educating all students more effectively. This session will provide participants with specific examples and tools that can be used in the design process to promote social equity.

Session 3: Design for Sustainability Education

Our climate crisis demands leadership from every sector—individuals and businesses that are influenced and may in the future be led by the students in our schools. Sustainability education is essential, and the design of school environments can support its success. Our choices about how to design schools signal how seriously we’re taking students’ futures, their future struggles with climate change, and their future opportunities for a green and strong economy. This panel will give rich examples of school buildings that have been designed with student learning at the center—and, in particular, students learning how to build a more sustainable future.
