This event was rescheduled from March 10th, 2020 and is now available online.
Join Women for a Healthy Environment and Green Building Alliance for technical guidance on addressing mold, lead and radon in your school building. Participants will learn best practices around preventing moisture & mold issues in their buildings and will learn how to investigate, evaluate, and remediate moisture & mold problems in their building. Participants will receive technical guidance on the environmental hazards of lead and radon, understand the steps and nuances of testing and remediation and learn more about the resources available to assist in the process.
This workshop is presented in collaboration with the 1000 Hours a Year Project, which is committed to helping improve the environments where children learn to keep kids safe, healthy and learning. The 1000 Hours a Year Project was made possible through generous funding from The Heinz Endowments and talented staff from Women for a Healthy Environment¹s Healthy Schools PA and Green Building Alliance’s Green and Healthy Schools Academy.
