Maryland is a leader in the green schools movement, with over 130 high performance, LEED certified schools across the state. Join USGBC Maryland for a Green Schools Thought Leadership Panel that takes a holistic approach in examining how sustainability goals overlap with and further mission-based school district priorities around equity, health, student learning and community support.
The panel will kick off with remarks from Baltimore NOMA on the interconnection between equity and sustainability in the green schools space. We will then hear from representatives from a diverse set of Maryland public school systems, including urban, suburban and rural districts of varying size and resources, that have all made ambitious commitments to building and operating sustainable learning facilities. These panelists will share their district’s experiences working with green schools, including schools pursuing LEED certification. They will discuss how sustainable schools have impacted their communities, with a focus on how we can create spaces where all students and staff can thrive that also serve as a resource for families and neighborhoods.
