Created for secondary and post-secondary students, The LEED Curriculum teaches the core concepts of sustainability in the built environment, operations, and management using the LEED rating system. This presentation provides an overview of The LEED Curriculum by the director of Green-Speak, Heather McCombs.

Green-Speak is a remote-first, people-first company. Our mission, “To provide sustainability curriculum to every school in America using the USGBC LEED rating system” is ambitious and achievable. Our partners and the Green-Speak team work together to provide innovative and exemplary educational tools that engage students in hands-on sustainability projects using the gold standard for green building rating systems, LEED. Heather McCombs has taught sustainability using the LEED rating system for 15 years. Author of the best-selling LEED Green-Associate Exam Preparation Guide, v.4, McCombs left the construction and design field to train teachers and professionals worldwide in the core concepts of sustainability. Green-Speak is the scaling-up of that effort, with the goal of providing everyone who lives in buildings the tools to improve their impact on the triple bottom line – people, planet, and profit.
