Liberty High School hosts sustainability workshop

April 1, 2014

By Staff

Inspired by TED Talks, Liberty High School is introducing its own forum to share ideas about building a culture of sustainability.

Liberty’s STARTalks, set for April 3, will feature three presentations about how sustainability fits in the classroom. STAR stands for Sustainability Tools for Assessing and Rating, the nation’s first self-reporting system for measuring progress on sustainable community conditions.

The community is invited to attend three 12-minute talks, offered three times during the day at Liberty High School’s Performing Arts Center, 16655 S.E. 136th St., Renton. Presented together as a 45-minute assembly, the talks will be offered at 7:30 a.m., 9:30 a.m. and 12:45 p.m.

Attendees will hear from a panel of Liberty students as they explain the conditions in the community for green building; Bassetti Architects, the firm responsible for Liberty’s new design, will talk about the school’s green features; and Stacy Smedley will talk about SEEDclassroom, the world’s first modular, adaptable classroom built to stringent green standards.

Visitors should check into the main office before heading to the Performing Arts Center. Learn more at
