The Green Schools Conference & Expo is the premier education and engagement opportunity for teachers, parents, students, school and district staff, educational leaders, building industry professionals, non-profit partners and others who are passionate about the future of green schools throughout the country and around the world.
Collaboration and innovation are necessary ingredients to transform schools into healthier, more sustainable places to learn, work and play. Leaders and advocates come together each year to work toward making visible, measurable and lasting progress toward the three pillars of green schools: environmental impact, health impact and environmental and sustainability literacy.
The 2017 conference — which took place March 21-22 in Atlanta, Georgia — focused on key opportunities for sustainability to address social equity challenges in school systems and the crucial role that healthy, sustainable schools play in strengthening communities to make a positive difference for our children’s futures.
GSCE is presented by the Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), in partnership with the Green Schools National Network (GSNN). The GSCE Steering Committee and Program Working Group play an active role in the development and delivery of educational programming intended to meet GSCE attendees’ needs.

The Green Schools Conference & Expo is the only national event to bring together all the players involved in making green schools a reality: people who lead, operate, build and teach in U.S. schools.
Two days of programming offer inspiring keynote speakers, informative workshops and breakout sessions and the chance to network with colleagues from across the country. This year, GSCE will be hosted in partnership with Rocky Mountain Green, a regional sustainability conference.
Discover strategies and solutions at GSCE that strengthen our schools and communities. Education, environmental, and business leaders join GSCE to share current challenges, set future goals and share best practices to advance green schools for all.
