Call for Applicants: School Sustainability Leaders Summit

The Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council is now accepting applications to attend this summer’s School Sustainability Leaders Summit from June 27-29. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until April 30, 2012.

The Summit will be held at USGBC offices in DC and is designed for school district or school system staff who are the point-people for environmental sustainability within their organization. It is intentionally small in scale--around fifty attendees--allowing for very targeted learning and the opportunity to join and connect with a network of supportive professionals.

Last year’s event was a smashing success. Attendees from across the country shared stories, best practices, skill development, and more. You can find out more by watching the short Green Schools Fellowship video or reading the subsequent story on our blog.

The training is free and open to all types of K12 school districts or systems (public, private and charter). This year, we’re also offering a limited number of $500 travel stipends to help with the cost of getting to DC and staying in the city. The application for the Summit (at the link below) contains a section to apply for one of these stipends.
