Project Green Schools is happy to share a blog post from our partner Planet Aid regarding our 2018 Green Difference Awards.


On April 13,  Project Green Schools held its annual awards ceremony: the Green Difference Awards. The event, held at the Massachusetts State House in Boston, honors students, schools, and other green heroes whose efforts helped protect the planet. Planet Aid — a PGS sponsor for over eight years — was in attendance at the event to congratulate the awardees.

Project Green Schools (PGS) works with schools, organizations, clubs, and individuals in the United States and abroad to develop the “next generation of environmental leaders through education, project-based learning and community service.”  

“The partnership between Planet Aid and Project Green Schools has had a measurable impact on our planet.”

PGS and Planet Aid are natural partners due to their shared goal of educating the public about how to better protect the environment. PGS works with the next generation, focusing its efforts on educating youth, to ensure that they have a solid foothold for continued revitalization of the planet they will inherit. “Our resources will only go on so long,” Fernandes said, “PGS makes a great impact ensuring that they [the next generation] can move forward.” READ MORE
