Educational Green Roofs Conference (free!)

  • PS 41 116 West 11th Street New York, NY, 10011 United States (map)

Calling all NYC teachers, administrators, and PTA members: If your school has an underutilized roof space, and you've been thinking about installing a green roof but weren't sure where to turn for advice, this conference is for you! RSVP for free here.

Why install a green roof on a school? "Green roofs can be used as outdoor classrooms all year round to study important topics such as weather patterns, the water cycle, climate change, air and water quality, stormwater management, sustainable agriculture and biodiversity... They can reduce carbon emissions and energy costs while reducing stormwater runoff and heat island effect; they also provide important habitat for local and migratory wildlife."
