The Washington Green Schools Program is a fantastic organization that is furthering sustainability in our state through empowering the very base of our societies, our students! Green Schools pairs students, teachers and administrators together to work on improving the environmental performance of their schools. I've personally seen students that were shy and meek working on projects that influenced their entire school community. Doing so opened these students up, dramatically increasing their confidence, not to mention helping develop their systems thinking, and their desire to be involved in their community. Green teams pair together students from diverse backgrounds to work on projects that can make significant change, but are broken down enough to create a step-by-step process that makes these large goals attainable, as evidenced by the numerous schools that are making their way through the certification process. I am excited to see where Washington Green Schools goes in the future, but I am all the more excited to see where these empowered environmental student leaders take our nation!
