Special Pre-Summit Event: ZNE Schools Workshop
Tuesday, November 4
12:30 pm - 4:30 pm

zne
Zero net energy (ZNE) schools have the unprecedented potential to create sustainable and healthy learning environments for student and teachers in California. These buildings, which use only as much energy as is produced onsite, are possible today and being created both at existing school properties and new construction projects.

School administrators, educators, facilities managers and local government representatives are invited to a ZNE Schools Workshop on November 4 to learn about the strategies necessary to achieve successful ZNE projects. Lunch will be served.

The California Public Utilities Commission is working with New Buildings Institute and Green Technology to offer this half-day event, which is being held prior to the Green Schools Summit on Nov. 5-6. The highly interactive session will bring together critical leadership from the schools sector and cover strategies for communication, planning, design, and financing.

Participants will gain knowledge about general market trends, California’s goals around these extremely high performing schools, the feasibility and examples of achieving zero net energy performance, and how to apply the customized tools and knowledge necessary to implement policies, programs or projects with ZNE performance goals. Attendees will also have the chance to connect and share information with peers regarding high performance and ZNE schools.

Registration for this Pre-Summit event is included at no extra cost with every one-day or two-day Summit education pass, or you may register separately for this event.

Details are available here.

Listening Session: CDE Statewide Environmental Literacy
Task Force (ELTF)
Stakeholder Workshop Facilitated by: The ELTF and Glen Price Group (GPG)
Wednesday, November 5
1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

The State Superintendent for Public Instruction Tom Torlakson and the California Department of Education have launched the Environmental Literacy Task Force (ELTF) to develop a Blueprint with recommendations that implement California’s State Board of Education approved Environmental Principles and Concepts and ensures that all California students will develop the knowledge, attitudes, and decision-making skills to contribute to an ecologically sustainable future. The Task Force is composed of key statewide education stakeholders with expertise in science education, classroom teaching and formal learning environments, informal and outdoor environmental education, culturally relevant curriculum, and green schools. The implementation in California of Green Schools, Common Core State Standards, and the Next Generation Science Standards offer important opportunities to integrate environmental literacy throughout the K-12 education system. 

The ELTF is actively soliciting perspectives from broadly diverse interests to ensure that the final Blueprint for Environmental Literacy will meet the needs of California’s schools, students, and communities. Join us for an interactive session that will give you the chance to provide feedback and input on recommendations being developed by the ELTF.

Note: All Summit attendees are welcome to attend this workshop; there is no registration charge for participation.
