The Greenest School on Earth: How do you choose?
Out of the most impressive and inspiring school buildings in the entire world, how do you choose just one to name the Greenest School on Earth? The task is a daunting one, but also an incredibly rewarding one. This year, our Greenest School on Earth program received over 300 percent more applications than last year from schools that are making tremendous progress in providing better education to our world’s future leaders.
Celebrating the wins for sustainability
In my first environmental management class, the instructor posed a very simple question: “Do you wake up in the morning overwhelmed with all that is wrong with the world, or are you optimistic about where things are heading?” There was a very long pause and then the teacher replied, “I agree. It depends on the day.”
Thank you for your submission
