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.
