Today, as K-12 schools work to achieve sustainability, they face issues of rising costs for maintenance and operations, lack of funding for special programs, new curriculum development around sustainability, and difficulties in connecting with their communities on broader sustainability initiatives. This one-day symposium will explore these issues through a set of plenary sessions and break-out sessions with speakers from across the country.
This event is jointly sponsored by the Global Institute of Sustainability and the Council of Educational Facility Planners International. CEFPI is the only professional organization whose principal purpose is improving the places where children learn. CEFPI embraces a diverse group of professionals with one single goal—building healthy, safe, high-performing, and sustainable learning environments that enhance student and teacher performance and support culture and community vitality.
