Wilsonart Announces Second Annual National Day of Learning
A year after launching its educational initiative, Understanding Wood: Sourcing Against the Grain, Wilsonart announced a renewed commitment to help educate architects and designers (A&D) about using responsibly sourced wood materials. To further support the A&D community, Wilsonart is conducting a second National Day of Learning event, launching a cross country education tour, adding new content to its educational hub, and renewing its grant to Interlochen Arts Academy – reaching tomorrow’s designers, today.
The National Day of Learning will take place Oct. 3, 2018. Professionals are invited to join in person or online for the second annual National Day of Learning on the topic of Global Forestry and what you need to know to protect your practice. Registration is required. All attendees will earn 1 CEU HSW: Sustainability Credit for IDCEC or AIA by attending.
The CEU will take place at The Center for Architecture in NYC and will be livestreamed twice that day so participants outside of NYC can join. The Global Forestry CEU will be presented by Grace Jeffers, an American writer, historian and educator, who is known for an interdisciplinary and integrated approach to the study of materials. In 2018, Jeffers was named one of seven National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) ‘Insiders,’ a hand-selected group of thought leaders, chosen for their ability to push boundaries and infuse global knowledge and experience to positively impact the residential built environment.
In addition to speaking at the National Day of Learning, Jeffers will be touring America and speaking with architectural firms, colleges and universities and industry organizations and leadership groups about Global Forestry.
New content, including videos, photography, presentations and articles will continue to act as a resource for the A&D community on www.Wilsonart.com/understanding-wood. A gallery of Interlochen students’ perspectives on the subject will also be updated throughout the year.
