This year, we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day – and we are going virtual! As our primary fundraiser, this is an event to honor our planet, connect with others, and support the Eco-School Network. Your presence empowers student and parent changemakers who are inspiring hope and propelling our region toward a better future.
The Eco-School Network equips parents and students to lead school communities toward sustainability. Students and parents discover that they can create meaningful change by launching initiatives they care about to make schools greener and healthier. Our 137 trained leaders from 64 schools collaborate in district networks throughout the Portland Metro area to reform practices at the district level too. Engaging one-sixth of Oregon’s elementary students in practicing sustainability at school, the Network shrinks environmental footprints, enhances learning, builds a connection to nature, and develops their capacity to shape a brighter tomorrow.
