The Eco-School Network is thrilled to be a local partner for the Green Schools Conference & Expo, presented by the Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). This conference encourages collaboration by bringing all players together to advance sustainability in schools, including teachers, parents, students, building industry professionals, educational leaders, and non-profit partners. Eco-School Network parent leaders know how important it is to engage all stakeholders in order to shift the culture of their school. We are excited to connect with other organizations making sustainable change in their communities to share successes, opportunities for collaboration, and to leave feeling inspired about the collective impact across the country!
Several local partners will be presenting at the conference, including Portland Public Schools Nutrition Services, Eco-Schools USA, Oregon Green Schools, among others. The conference will take place at the Hilton Portland Downtown on March 2-4th. There is still time to register: http://greenschoolsconference.org/#registration
We hope to see you there!
