Why Attend ECG 2019

The Willow School

Located in picturesque Gladstone, NJ, the Willow School has taken green and healthy building to the next level in an educational environment. Founded in 2001 with the core belief that children thrive in a setting that embraces the natural environment, this K-8 co-educational facility is a model of what the future of education can be. The school’s commitment to sustainability can be found in both its innovative curriculum and the spaces in which they teach. With three LEED certified buildings, the latest both LEED Platinum and Living Building Challenge, in which this conference will be held, the school continues to redefine what educational spaces should be. Join us to tour their facilities with their designer, architect Michael Farewell, FAIA, LEEDap. Learn more at https://willowschool.org/
