Presenting the Guide at Greenbuild Nation, 2013

Helping to build more healthy communities is at the heart of our work at Architecture for Humanity -- it's the very foundation of the organization and what we strive towards in every one of our projects. It's with that in mind, and with an approaching new year, that we are shifting our Green Schools focus towards larger, cross-sector partnerships. It's not that size matters, quite the contrary. We know that every one of us has a role to play in building healthier schools, healthier communities and it's with that, that we say so long for now to this campaign. We're grateful for every penny donated to the cause Help Us Green America's Schools!. It's, in part, from your support, that we've been able to:

  • Launch, manage and complete a student-led Green Schools Improvement competition, aka Guerrilla Green;
  • Develop a lesson plan to guide students and teachers through the green building improvement process;
  • Announce the Guerrilla Green winners and the largest check we've ever written (literally) live and on site;
  • Present the Guide (a free downloadable resource for K-12 schools and communities that demonstrates how schools can implement healthy and resource-efficient building improvements) at Greenbuild Nation, 2013.

Stay tuned to and keep in touch with us at Architecture for Humanity as we continue to build the case, the model and the framework for action towards a more resilient, more sustainable and more just built world. Thank you for being a part of our team.
