In 2016, Jayne Stevenson was awarded a Green Difference Award in the category of “Outstanding School-led Project in Climate Action.” Jayne Stevenson is a leader and organizer for the Roots and Shoots Club at the St. Louis Park High School, Minnesota. The club connected with iMatter in 2015, and began planning an iMatter Now campaign in their city. The group had gathered over 500 youth signatures from their high school classmates, and created a Youth Climate Report Card for St. Louis Park, and presented it to the St. Louis Park City Council to pass a Climate Inheritance Resolution.
Project Green Schools student leaders invited to lead events at the Paris Climate Conference- COP 21.
Over 50,000 world leaders from over 190 nations will meet in Paris to hopefully pass resolutions to combat climate change.
Project Green Schools students raise their voices for creating a healthier, more sustainable future for their generation and those that follow at COP 21.
Our students have already proven themselves at The White House and across the nation. Together with global partners and thousands of schools and organization we #ActOnClimate.
