California is setting the pace for a green schools revolution that reflects the state’s commitment to preserving natural resources and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The added benefit? Healthy environments that improve faculty morale and student performance.

The 2009 Green California Schools Summit will bring together leaders in this movement to share strategies, best practices and results from green school programs. The event will also include an exhibition featuring hundreds of exhibitors with innovative products and services that can help your school attain its green goals, and attain long-term savings.

Despite turbulent economic times, funding can be found for school projects, whether from state sources, the private sector or federal stimulus funds. Don’t miss this chance to discover what’s available.

The Summit will also address the role of curriculum in green schools, and the role that schools can play in helping students find a place in the emerging green economy.
