Introduction

In the wake of a changing global environment, the 8th NYC Green School Conference, scheduled for September 23-24, 2024, at the ILR School, Cornell University, New York, emerges as a critical platform.

Coinciding with the 79th session of the United Nations General Assembly and the Summit of the Future at UNGA, the conference aspires to pivot educational practices towards sustainability.

Anchored in the UNESCO Greening Education Partnership's four pillars, the Summit of the Future at UNGA's vision, and the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact, this gathering is set to redefine greening education to address contemporary global challenges.

Key Challenges

The conference aims to dissect and devise solutions for the multifaceted challenges confronting K-12 schools and higher education institutions, bridging gaps in environmental education and fostering sustainable development.

Vision

Our vision is to champion a movement where education becomes a powerful conduit for environmental stewardship, nurturing generations of informed citizens ready to embark on sustainable paths and build a just, green future.

Our mission is to catalyze meaningful conversations, share pioneering strategies, and forge partnerships that pave the way for an integrative approach to environmental education and sustainability in academic settings.

Goal

Our collective goal is to ignite a global educational transformation, fostering an environment where greening education becomes the norm rather than the exception, addressing the planet's most pressing environmental challenges head-on.
