The New Year is right around the corner, which means the Green Schools National Network (GSNN) is gearing up to host its annual Green Schools Conference and Expo (GSCE). Held in Pittsburgh, PA from March 31 –April 1, 2016, the 6th annual conference promises to be the best yet! The 2016 GSCE marks the first year of GSNN’s partnership with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and its Center for Green Schools in producing the event. GSNN is excited about USGBC’s role and their commitment to put on a world-class event for attendees.

- GSNN and USGBC have put together a jam-packed 2 day program, plus pre-conference workshops and tours. The breakout sessions feature topics such as curriculum, green cleaning, whole school buy ambien tijuana sustainability, waste reduction, and environmental best practices. GSNN and USGBC are happy to welcome a number of new school presenters to the conference and are excited to see the ideas, practices, and wisdom they have to share!
