The school year has come to a close at the Sustainability Workshop, a project-based school at The Navy Yard that challenges Philadelphia public school seniors to solve the world’s toughest problems. The organization celebrated the end of the school year on June 4th with a large exhibition event, where its 30 graduating high school students displayed the year’s final projects.
From a commitment to encourage green building construction and innovative management practices, to our focus on the Smart Energy Campus and building a national center for energy research, education, and commercialization, The Navy Yard is at the leading edge of sustainability, and brings Philadelphia closer to Mayor Michael Nutter’s goal of becoming America’s greenest city.
With active initiatives in all aspects of planning, development, operations, and business development, PIDC puts sustainable business practices to work every day. To celebrate Earth Day, PIDC hosted the 2nd annual Earth Day Bike Tour of The Navy Yard, a public, free tour where cyclists embarked on a seven-stop sustainability initiatives tour of the campus.
