SPROUTING A GREEN SCHOOL – Growing a Green School Discussion Series
Join the Portland Green Schools Committee for the second panel of our 2019 discussion series: GROWING A GREEN SCHOOL
Green and high performance school buildings offer students and teachers healthy and productive learning spaces and deliver cost avoidance on utility expenses to put money back into classrooms. School districts can implement policies, programs and practices to move beyond simply meeting code requirements and produce facilities that combat energy and climate volatility and deliver long-term value to the entire district. Delivering a green school requires an integrated design process, agreement of project goals, dynamic team communication and utilizing absolute energy targets to design and construct. During this interactive discussion, panelists will discuss stakeholder engagement, building assessment, design process, and technology applications used to guide their green school design projects.
School high performance experts from the field will showcase the success stories and lessons learned to encourage incorporating green school practices in school planning, design and construction to ensure a high performance outcome.
This is a FREE event, please RSVP.

Would you like to share your knowledge of architecture, engineering, and construction with middle school students and helps shape their understanding of what our built environment in the future could be like? The Oregon and Southwest Washington Chapter is looking for volunteers to be mentors for middle school students in the Metro area as they participate in the SchoolsNEXT Design Competition
, which challenges student teams to design their “school of the future”. Mentors will work directly with students and their teachers, and can volunteer for as much time as they are able. Planning, design, construction and operations knowledge in all fields and skills are welcome. The competition starts in Fall and concludes with the Chapter competition in March. This is a great opportunity to educate our sustainability leaders of the future! Contact Robert Allen
or Katrina Shum Miller
