The Green Schools National Network has created a “culture of collaboration,” as a result of year-round networking and partnerships, and through an annual national conference. We bring together like-minded people committed to the creation and support of healthy, green and sustainable schools.
As the only national conference bringing together experts and stakeholders to influence sustainability throughout K-12 schools and school districts, the annual Green Schools National Conference has grown in terms of attendance and scope. Colleagues who share their passion and offer their own green schools experiences are put together in a true collaborative event with thought leaders and early adopters of green school best practices. Attendees are passionate about transforming schools and the way they operate. The annual conference is designed to allow attendees to learn about creative strategies for success and to take home real-life tools that can transform schools.
Our recent conference in Sacramento continued our modus operandi in planning these annual events. Our planning process not only attracts ‘green’ advocates from across the country, but we work to include local green school representatives, advocates, and support organizations based in and around the conference venue. In California, we worked closely with HealthCorps and the Collaborative for High Performance Schools in developing programming and showcasing success stories that would inspire and motivate conferees.

For the March MBA Community Meeting Forum, Management Department Chair and Practicum advisor, Robbie Hertneky, will provide an introduction to Practicum. Students in the MBA in Sustainability program complete three credits of practicum work in an area of personal and professional interest, under the guidance of a faculty advisor.
The practicum is an independent project in which students:
- research areas of interest
- identify practicum focus
- use project management tools to demonstrate their learning and evolving expertise
- present final project to students, faculty, alumni and the community
Students currently engaged in practicum projects will be invited to share their experiences.
During the second part of the session, John Dunham, coordinator of the Antioch University New England Writing Center, will discuss key considerations in preparing and delivering informative and engaging presentations.
