GSA is greening up the Apple!

Uniquely created “by schools for schools,” the first Green Schools Alliance resource event was launched in NYC at the Allen-Stevenson School in October 2007 to “empower students and their schools with the skills, knowledge, and tools necessary to meet their energy and sustainability goals, and to become global leaders in their own communities.”  Other Schools hosting GSA resource events have included: Town School, United Nations International School, Spence School, Collegiate School, Dalton School, Nightingale-Bamford School.
