      Meet a Keynote!

      Matt Bogoshian is one of our 2014 Green Schools National Conference keynotes. Not only is Matt Senior Advisor at the Office of Chemical Safety & Pollution with the Environmental Protection Agency, some of our 2013 conferees may recall he brought down the house with a musical number - guitar in hand - at our closing event. 
      Magical School Makeover

      Take a group of talented architects, add a school district committed to positive change, and you have a project that transformed two mid-century school buildings into a modern learning campus for K-5 students. Read all about it -- and be inspired!

      Our COO/CFO Jennifer Seydel is one of several contributing authors on a forthcoming white paper that outlines a national action plan for graduating students educated for sustainability by 2040. Jenny points out that while the authors are experts in their domain, the team would like input from all stakeholders. She encourages individuals to review the key recommendations, and use the comment function to provide input. You can find the recommendations, as well as further information about this initiative:
