Students at the Boston Latin School founded a network of youth member groups called the Youth ClimateAction Network, that now has 18 member groups in Massachusetts. The network has an annual climate summit for youth and educators at MIT every spring and is promoting a statewide effort to incorporate education for sustainability curriculum. BLS Youth CAN students have also proposed an innovative green roof and community learning center on the roof of the Boston Latin School that is designed to be a shared learning space where schools can visit outdoor classrooms, greenhouse and gardens as well as work with state-of-the-art energy technologies, all while learning about the big ideas of sustainability.
BLS Youth CAN students are competing in the Kohl’s Cares School competition for $500,000 to help fund the roofscape learning center. You can support BLS Youth CAN students by voting for them five times on Facebook at this link. You may also vote by going to the BLS Youth CAN website and clicking on the blue Kohl’s link near the top left of the page. The competition ends September 3rd. Help us make it into the top 20 schools and fund this worthwhile educational project.
