The Center for Green Schools and Green Schools National Network are pleased to announce that the 2024 Green Schools Conference (GSC) will take place in the historic and LEED Gold City of Santa Fe, New Mexico this spring March 5-7, 2024.
The GSC is a unique event designed to unite the green schools community across industries and sectors, including educators, school staff and administrative leaders at the school district and system levels; design and construction professionals; and advocates for green schools including parents and retired volunteers, non-profit organizations, and government agencies. The 2024 event will include three-days of programming curated to allow attendees to exhibit thought leadership through summits, receive action-oriented training through workshops, and opportunities to establish connections across disciplines, within their specific peer groups and with resource providers.
Education sessions will be presented at the Santa Fe Community Convention Center, a LEED Gold facility. The 2024 GSC will kick off on March 5 with half-day workshops and half-day summits. The conference experience will continue on March 6 with an inspirational opening keynote presentation, interdisciplinary content and education sessions, opportunities to participate in a speed greening exercise with green school resource providers, and the Best of Green Schools Award Ceremony & Reception. The conference will conclude on March 7 with interdisciplinary content presented in education sessions and a memorable closing keynote presentation to motivate attendees to continue advancing the progress of the green schools movement.
New this year! Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in morning yoga, wellness challenges, and opening circles designed for more intimate conversations within peer groups.
