About GSCE x IMPACT 2019

GSCE is the only national event to bring together all of the players involved in making green schools a reality: people who lead, operate, build and teach in U.S. schools.

IMPACT is a USGBC regional event in the Midwest featuring educational sessions covering all aspects of sustainable design, construction and operations practices for buildings and communities, including their impact on people, the environment and the economy—locally and nationally.

The two events will be co-located for the first time April 8–9 in Saint Paul, Minnesota.

How to participate

Each event is accepting proposals and both call for different priorities, topics and presentation styles. Be sure to consult the GSCE and IMPACT Call for Proposals documents to determine where your proposal fits best and how it will be reviewed.

Peer reviewers evaluate session proposals and help maintain the quality of sessions by identifying exceptional presentations.
