KEYNOTE
Maurice MuiaClimate Advisor, City of St. Louis, American Cities Climate Challenge, Natural Resources Defense Council 
& Past Green Schools Quest Mentor

Maurice K. Muia currently serves as the Climate Advisor for the City of St. Louis where he advises the City on sustainable building policy and transportation electrification. He was instrumental in the passing of a historic Solar Ready ordinance for new construction in the City of St. Louis. Prior to his current role, he was an electrical power system engineer with electric utilities across the State of Missouri. In 2009, he met with Delegate to Congress Dr. Christensen to discuss opportunities for sustainability in island nations for the U.S. Virgin Islands. Additionally, he was a Sustainability Commissioner for the City of Maplewood where he worked on Sustainability and Climate Change challenges at the local level. He believes sustainability and climate change are one of the biggest issues facing our local community and nation. From his perspective, the three most important issues before the City and its residents are the following: safety, youth engagement, and continuity. Engaging our youth in careers and opportunities of the future outside of school should create a better environment for our children and families.

Flance Learning Center opened to students in June 2014, and aims to be an exemplary early
learning center, serving children of all incomes and backgrounds, six-weeks to six-years of age in a new, $11.5 million facility. The center’s design team placed heavy emphasis on ensuring that indoor and outdoor spaces were resource-efficient, free of toxins, healthy for students, comfortable for teachers, and cost-effective.  In recognition of this emphasis on health and environmental
sustainability, Flance Center is registered to become only the 4th LEED for Schools Certified
Preschool in the world.   Universal Design features are also incorporated to create a convenient
experience for staff and students, regardless of physical ability, thereby creating an environment in which special-needs and typical-needs children can thrive side-by-side in the same classrooms.
