  • elizabeth

    I LOVE SCHOOLS FOR SUSTAINABILITY. It is not a band-aid solution that addresses the symptoms. It addresses and solves the actual problems. Such an amazing organization!

    • Alyssa Rosario

      Exactly! We need to address the problems – poverty, environmental degradation and educational inadequacy. It is not enough to feed someone for one day or to plant one tree. We need whole-systems solutions that address all problems at once, and that inspire long-term solutions. Thank you Elizabeth!!!

        I agree with all the comments on this discussion board in regards to Schools for Sustainabily. This is a brilliant scheme with hands on opportunity to learn and help the planet at the same time. We do need whole-systems solutions that address all problems at once, and that inspire long-term solutions. Really hope this takes off and others follow your lead.

        Do you have a website for all of this or anyway to schedule an event so you can obtain volunteers? I’d love to get involved with this and I actually know a company that would like to help you spread the work by doing some video marketing for you :)
