Education sessions at the Summit are designed to help those involved in sustainability and environmental education programs in California schools discover strategies and resources that can help them achieve their goals.

Special attention is paid to identifying presentations that include case histories from California campuses, and lessons learned from efforts to increase building efficiency and health, manage water, implement green building strategies and encourage environmental literacy.

The Golden State is home to green leaders in a variety of disciplines, and the Summit benefits greatly from their participation as speakers in the program.
