This session, limited to 50 participants, will give you the tools you need to succeed! Discover the essential elements of a sustainability program for a school, community or business? This session will draw upon decades of experience in developing and implementing model programs.

April 19th – for Educators:

Green Curriculum Institute
9:00 am – 12:00 pm

The basic ingredient of any effort to build a green future is citizens who understand the environmental impacts of their personal and professional decisions.

The Summit is the place to come to get up to date on best strategies for implementation of the EEI materials and to learn about professional development resources that can help your colleagues have success with them. All participants will receive a complete set of the materials on DVD.
