In recognition of President Obama’s call for the nation’s first official September 11 Day of Service and Remembrance, thousands of service projects will take place across the nation to remember the victims of 9/11 and engage more Americans in community service. Get involved!

Design an exhibition for the classroom of the future
For the past year Architecture for Humanity has run an international design competition to design and build sustainable, green classrooms of the future. Over 400 design teams partnered with schools in more than 65 countries and this fall we hope to assemble a book and exhibition of winning and selected entries. Starting in late August the exhibition will travel around the United States as well as Denmark, Japan, Italy and Singapore. For more information email challenge@architectureforhumanity.org
