SPEAKER: Heather Goetsch, Project Manager, Wisconsin Chapter, USGBC

TOPIC: Green Schools

SUMMARY: 

Instead of walking into places of opportunity, millions of students enter buildings where the air they breathe is filled with toxins and mold, where classrooms are poorly lit and overcrowded, and where resources are limited and outdated. Too many of our children are learning in buildings that compromise their health and ability to succeed. Our kids deserve better. Where they learn matters. Let’s talk about Green Schools and how you can impact their ability to thrive.
