7th Annual Learn Green:
Florida’s Green Schools Conference
2014-15 Green Difference Award Winner
This annual conference is the brainchild of Florida Atlantic University’s Pine Jog Environmental Education Center and the Palm Beach County School District’s Division of Support Operations. It is our aim that Learn Green will encourage schools to create cultures of sustainability and that our efforts will lead to empowering students to become the leaders of a greener future. We are anticipating a record attendance this year of 1000+. Together we are growing Florida’s green and healthy generation.
Learn Green is a key component of a larger initiative, the Green Schools Recognition Program, which encourages schools to create cultures of sustainability and learning that will empower students to create a more sustainable future. Learn Green provides a one-day immersion in workshops and exhibits that highlight green best practices for schools and that share innovative and effective ideas. The conference gives teachers, students and administrators the opportunity to learn from each other as well as from industry experts about everything from starting a hydroponic garden and recycling to energy conservation and incorporating the environment into lesson plans.
