There’s still time to join us for Green Apple Day of Service on Saturday, Sept. 24, by participating in a service event near you. Tell us you’re in by signing up now.
Green Apple Day of Service gathers parents, teachers, students, companies and local organizations to transform schools into healthy, safe and productive learning environments and celebrates our green schools champions across the globe.
For the past few weeks, we’ve shared some of our favorite event ideas and ways to track progress and measure the impact of your projects. Check out greenapple.org for more ideas, promotional tools and event resources for your project.
With more than 700 million students worldwide, and one-sixth of all Americans entering a K–12 school building each day, there is no questioning the enormity and urgency of the task before us. Both the way we educate and the way we take care of the school environment sends a tangible sign of a community’s willingness to provide an excellent and equitable education to all its students.
When we educate children, we guide them toward a future we hope they will create. We choose a sustainable future, and so we must educate students to prepare them to create it—in a place that inspires them. Together, we can transform our schools while teaching valuable lessons and cultivating the world’s next generation of sustainability leaders.
