Maine Chapter of USGBC Presents Green Eggs: Green Schools
Share this post
Location: Maine Audubon’s Gilsland Farm Educational Center, 20 Gilsland Farm Road (directly off Route One), Falmouth, Maine (Map)
What do the design features of a building tell us about the building’s relationship to nature or natural systems? Children learn about their relationship to ecological systems and to sustainable practices through the buildings they spend time in. Children spend about eight hours a day inside schools… what are we teaching them through our architectural and infrastructure choices?
Presenters Cindy Thomashow and Alan Kuniholm will explore these questions and more in September’s Green Eggs, the Maine Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council‘s monthly breakfast forum.
Join us at the beautiful Maine Audubon’s Gilsland Farm Environmental Center starting with networking and breakfast from 7:30 – 8:00 followed by a 45 minute presentation and a 15 minute question, answer & discussion period. Full breakfast – local, organic, creative – will be prepared by Local Sprouts Cooperative. Attendees can stick around after the presentations for a tour of the farm.
Attendance is $10 for members and $15 for non members. To register for the event, visit the Maine Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council’s website.
