    The Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council invites you to join the pilot of an online one-stop-shop for world-class education for sustainability. We are currently accepting applications from K-12 educators and administrators around the world for a one-year pilot launching in August 2015. 

    The platform makes it easy for teachers to seek and find high-quality, standards-aligned materials to teach sustainability as its own topic and as a contextual supplement to core subjects. Materials are available in English and Spanish.

    When the August 2015 pilot begins, the platform will debut a suite of action-oriented standards-aligned and STEM-enriched K-12 curriculum like Sustainable Intelligence. Based on the award-winning curricula and programming of EcoRise Youth Innovations from Austin, Texas, and created in collaboration with Instituto Thomas Jefferson in Mexico, Sustainable Intelligence includes cross-disciplinary connections, extensions and a complete Spanish-English translation with cultural adaptations.

    The deadline to register for the pilot is June 30, 2015. Click here to register or learn more, or download the one page flyer

    The Sustainability Café in Tucson is typically held on the third Thursday of the month. However, the Café will not be held in May because the Sonoran Branch is collaborating with Sustainable Tucson on a program that features two events in June. “Architecture and Sustainability in Tucson’s Built Environment: Panel Presentation” will be held on June 8. The second event in the “Architecture and Sustainability in Tucson’s Built Environment” program will feature a tour of a LEED-certified building on June 18 (the third Thursday in June).

    Here's an opportunity to let your voice be heard regarding our public schools, including curriculum, standards, facilities, energy and water conservation and the need for healthy and high performing schools. 

    From the 4/16/15 press release:

    Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas said today she will launch a statewide public tour next week to hear directly from Arizona residents about their opinions and concerns on all K-12 education issues.

    The annual process includes 1) a statewide series of meetings to listen to the public; 2) recommendations from Department of Education staff based on comments grouped into categories such as standards, curriculum, instruction, general, etc.; and 3) a statewide visit to the same sites to follow up with the public on recommended actions.

    The annual input from the public is likely to address many different topics, only one of which will be statewide standards. 

    The “We Are Listening” tour will make a total of 14 stops around the state through the end of June. Members of the public also can submit their feedback via email at HearingEveryVoice@azed.gov, online at www.azed.gov/HearingEveryVoice, or via the @azedschools Twitter account using #HearingEveryVoice.
