Educating the next generation is key to ensuring that the efforts taken towards turning critical environmental factors into actionable and profitable solutions continues. Today, grade schools and universities are going above and beyond by implementing environmental stewardship programs and an innovative approach to STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education. Through campus eco-audits, water infrastructure and solar panel design projects, and app competitions, schools are increasing student engagement and preparing them for real-world careers.
Join Marya Fowler of The National Wildlife Federation and Eco-schools, Gina LaMotte of EcoRise Youth Innovations, Alix Ogilvie of Architecture for Humanity and Pam Losefsky of The US Green Building Council for "Green STEM: Preparing the C21st Workforce." These experts will share examples of community-based design projects and highlight case studies from communities across the nation.
