Green Schools Alliance NYC 2013

In 2007 a consortium of schools on the Upper East Side got together to DO SOMETHING as school communities to protect the environment. 6 years later over 2500 schools are members of the Green Schools Alliance, making an international impact spearheaded by students, teachers and parents across the globe.

Inspiring, no?

The Lycee Francais de NY hosted this year’s Green Schools Alliance Earth Day Conference with sponsor, Veggiecation, an amazing organization dedicated to nutrition education for youth. Guerilla Haiku made an appearance to get people writing about the themes of the conference, and reflect on our school’s roles in making a positive impact on the environment!

Here’s a favorite from the day:

Children lead the way
conserving and inspiring
there is hope for us!

Check out these photos and let them challenge you to consider ways in which YOU can make an impact!!!

The Grocery Gods - smiling down on us today - thank you, oh Fairway!
Children lead the way - conserving and inspiring - there is hope for us!
La comunidad - y la educacion - jentos tienen que estar
Turn off your lights - It doesn't cost a dollar - But is your future
learn to recycle - or I will come after you - Giant Styrofoam
Sign our petition - End NYC's plastic bags - Help to change the world!
Woman clothed in bags - calling our attention to - our tremendous waste
Electricity - Saving the environment - So others can live
hypnotized by lunch - in nested silver circles - when will it be noon!?!
Help heal the planet - together we can make change - Change requires Action!
Running through the trees - Watching all the truth fly by - Laughing all the way
I love the planet - and want to protect it now - for the future kids
Creating their haiku!
