GREEN WORKS IN KANSAS CITY
May 18, 2011
Greenworks is a strong and relevant organization for our community. Kate Corwin is dedicated to creating meaningful opportunities and mentorships for students. This visionary program invests in youth in our community by introducing them to mentors, new ideas, and career opportunities related to the environment and sustainability. Through 2010, Greenworks interns worked at the Metropolitan Energy Center's Project Living Proof demonstration residence. With the guidance of engineers, landscape architects, and energy professionals, the students installed the initial phase of a Sustainable Sites Initiative pilot landscape. They were interested in the design and intentions of the project - and they brought fun and energy to the installation.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
our work at the Metropolitan Energy Center's Project Living Proof, a demonstration of smart grid technologies, sustainable renovation strategies, and innovative landscaping at an historical Kansas City home.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
get more students involved in the Greenworks program!
