Are you going to volunteer with us? That's right – we have a great opportunity in two weeks (most of the projects are on Saturday, Sept. 27th) with our Green Apple Day of Service! You can participate in a project at a school or other learning facility near you. Sign up by looking up a project on the map at the Center for Green Schools, our USGBC-affiliated partner organization for projects throughout the WORLD!

Also we have a Green Schools Committee Meeting on Thursday 9/18 at 6pm at our main office on Milk Street.
Speaking of green schools and academic communities, I recently met up with three wonderful people who are working hard on improving educational outcomes for sustainability and organizational change. Pictured below are Leith Sharp, leading the Harvard/USGBC “Core Business Integration of Sustainability (CBIS)” executive education program, Christine Renauld, founder and CEO of E-180 “Brain Dates for Learning Humans” (a platform for peer-to-peer informal learning exchanges), and Margo Street, manager of community advancement at USGBC, with whom I'm in constant correspondence at the national office. It was a great conversation which I'm sure will go forward into programming at the Massachusetts Chapter.
