Sustainability Education Committee: Showcasing Sustainability through Environmental Graphics (Virtual)

Creating a sustainable, resilient, and equitable future for the next generation starts with healthy school and community buildings, but it cannot end there. We must also educate our children and show them how they can contribute.

During this presentation, we will look at several projects, including Boardwalk Campus, King Open/Cambridge Street Upper Schools and Community Complex, Hildreth Elementary School, and the East Boston branch of the Boston Public Library, to see how educational graphics installed in publicly accessible areas can educate and engage all users on the unique aspects of sustainable design that typically go unnoticed. Learn best practices, tips and tricks for integrating graphics into your next project.
