As a result of this event, Green Schools anticipates being able to directly support 30 MA-based Schools or 300 Student Ambassadors!! How’s that for making The Green Difference!
The event was being presented in partnership with Invensys, a leading global technology company dedicated to helping other companies reduce waste and improve efficiency and sustainability, and Geosytenc, a consulting firm that addresses problems involving environment, natural resources, and civil infrastructure.
Other significant Sponsors include Crew Energy, Environ, Sodexo, ESP Solutions and North Easton Savings Bank. Additional Sponsors included: Hockomock Area YMCA, Honest Tea, Brad Brooks, ERM, Dewar, Next Step Living, Barrows Insurance, Waste Management, Veronica & Howard Wiseman, and Middlesex Savings Bank.
Green Schools would like to thank all who came out for this event and those who worked so hard behind the scenes to be able to support more Students and Schools. Green Schools would also like to thank our Golf Tournament Committee, our Volunteers, and Manchester Essex Regional High School - Young Women In Climate Team & Green Schools Executive Team for making our awesome Environmental Education signage!
We couldn’t have done it without you, and we look forward to seeing you next year!

Climate Change isn’t a distant threat, the risk to public health isn’t a hypothetical, and it’s clear we have a moral obligation to act.
The 12 hottest years on record have all come in the last 15 years, and 2012 was the hottest one we’ve ever recorded. When carbon pollutes the air, the risk of asthma attacks increases. When the Earth’s atmosphere fundamentally changes, we see more heat waves, droughts, wildfires, and floods.
Confronting climate change isn’t just about preventing disaster — it’s also about moving America forward in a way that creates hundreds of thousands of good, new, clean energy jobs. It’s about wasting less energy, which saves money and creates healthier students, schools and communities.
With the support of several leading National Environmental Education organizations, Green Schools officially graduated its 1st class of Environmentally Literate Students with Honor Stoles as a part of NGSS-National Green Schools Society. We have been honored to work with such tremendous student leadership, and we are thrilled to be able to recognize Outstanding Environmental Leadership this way for years to come!
