Green Team - Staff

A Green Team is typically a special group or club of students and adults that is dedicated to improving sustainability through projects, awareness, and actions. Green Teams are an excellent way to empower student leadership and lead whole-school change with the student's voice. Students can take on the challenges of planning, organizing, and implementing campaigns, events, competitions or more!

 

Our Green Team is led by the Sustainability Coordinator. Future meetings will typically occur during lunch, after school, or during an advisory period.

As part of our school’s annual Sustainability Plan, we are proud to be building a Green Team. The purpose of the Green Team is to forge a group of dedicated school leaders and students who are committed to promoting and implementing the school’s sustainability plan (submitted annually to NYC’s DOE). Our Green Team will be an essential part of any school’s efforts to ensure that recycling as it becomes ingrained into our school’s culture. While outreach to the general student population will be ongoing, having a green team will provide a forum for interested students to implement recycling-related and community projects to provide our students with hands-on environmental learning and opportunities to foster creativity as we strive to achieve our environmental goals.
