Join us for the SCHOOLYARD DIVERSITY conference in Berlin, Germany - September 4-6, 2017

This September, our colleagues at Grün Macht Schule will host the 6th global conference on school grounds for the International School Grounds Alliance. Entitled, "Schoolyard Diversity," this exciting event will be held in Berlin, Germany from September 4-6, 2017. We hope you will join us for three days of vibrant ideas and discussions with visionary leaders of the green school ground movement from Germany and around the world. The conference will include inspirational speakers, tours of Berlin's green schoolyards, and hands-on schoolyard greening activities. 

It's a special treat to be able to visit school grounds in Berlin, where the greening movement is now more than 25 years old, and is firmly established and thriving. Over the years, hundreds of schools in Berlin have been transformed from traditional paved urban environments to art-filled, nature-oriented spaces that nurture children and provide fantastic opportunities for all types of play. This conference is also a special opportunity to gain a detailed understanding of the excellent programs and practices in Berlin that have worked successfully over the last few decades to help produce diversity in design, education and ecology.

Join us at the conference to learn about the latest trends and innovations, case studies, best practices, and creative thinking and teaching in the green school ground design field, and pick up strategies for maintenance, advocacy and funding. Additional conference features include a resource and networking fair, a sunset boat trip with music and dining, and access to the International Garden exhibition which will be in Berlin at the same time! Our Schoolyard Diversity Conference will be of interest to school leaders, educators, architects, designers and planners. The conference will be conducted in English.

We hope to see you in Berlin!
