The Getting to Zero Forum has collaborated with partners to curate a set of virtual workshops after the Forum. Separate registration is required for these high-value educational experiences. More workshops will be added soon!

21st Century Schools: Cleaner and Greener

School district staff, stakeholders, and design professionals will engage in a 3-part educational series and hands-on virtual work session to lay the foundation to kickstart their own roadmaps to full decarbonization by mid-century. This virtual offering, sponsored by NYSERDA and enVerid, in tandem with the Getting to Zero Forum will dive deep into the steps for getting to zero, how to lay out a plan, and provide the template materials available to support districts on this path to full decarbonization. Through this series we will demonstrate that despite aging buildings and constrained operating budgets, getting to zero over time is possible.

Dates and times:
Wednesday, November 10, 2021: 12:00 pm-1:30 pm ET
Wednesday, December 8, 2021: 12:00 pm-1:30 pm ET
Wednesday, January 12, 2022: 12:00 pm-1:30 pm ET

During these three sessions, attendees will be able to work collaboratively and get the support they need to create the plan to get to zero carbon over time. School districts, school stakeholders, AEC professionals, and anyone interested in getting schools to the zero carbon goal are invited to attend. This series intends to spark action in New York State aligning with NYSERDA’s P-12 Schools Initiative and beyond.

Activities will support low carbon materials and alternative product selection, and the processes used by successful teams. It will introduce the latest design and data tools available, present case studies, and engage participants in facilitated discussions around designing lower embodied carbon projects. Attendees will leave the workshop with a toolkit of resources to aid their future projects.
