FREE Workshop for School Educators,

Thirty-nine schools responded to the U.S. Green Building Council-Missouri Gateway Chapter’s challenge to enter the first annual Green Schools Quest. Over the 2013-14 school year, participating schools devised and implemented - with the help of green mentors - creative, effective and no or low cost sustainable practices for their schools. Now, it’s time to celebrate!

 Join us at the 7th Annual Green Schools Event to:

  • Celebrate the winners and participants of the 2013-14 Green Schools Quest.
  • Explore a variety of green school projects that local schools engaged in.
  • Find out how you can participate in the 2014-15 Green Schools Quest - as a school or mentor.
  • Tour sustainable features of MICDS’s new STEM building which is pursuing LEED certification.
  • Learn about the Green Apple global movement and Green Apple Day of Service.
  • Discover green resources for YOUR school!

Guest Speaker - Emily Riordan We are thrilled to welcome Emily Riordan, Community Programs Manager for the Center for Green Schools to St. Louis! Emily will lend a national perspective on opportunities to transform our schools into healthy, safe, cost-efficient and productive learning places.
