We are excited to announce that one of our authors, Brian Dunbar, from the best-selling title 147 Practical Tips for Teaching Sustainability: Connecting the Environment, the Economy, and Society, will be presenting a full-day workshop at this year’s Green Schools Conference and Expo in St. Paul, Minnesota. This conference is the only national event that brings together those passionate about making schools green a reality.
Brian Dunbar is an educator and practitioner focused on green building. He is currently a Professor Emeritus at Colorado State University-Fort Collins, LEED Faculty for U.S. Green Building Council, and the Executive Director of the Institute for the Built Environment.
Brian will be presenting a tour and workshop titled Whole School Sustainability, on Wednesday, April 10th, 2019, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Como Park Zoo and Conservatory. Attendees of this workshop will be better prepared to address the three aspects of Whole School Sustainability in their own school or school system:
- developing a sustainable culture
- communicating the benefits of green school design and operations
- engaging teachers, staff, and students through curricula, sustainability teams and behavior change
Facilitators will share their experiences, lead group discussion, and guide participants through creating a Sustainability Action Plan and participating in a green school design exercise.
Attendees of this workshop will earn 5 GBCI credits.
