Project GREEN

Teacher Sustainability Summit

The 2020 Summit is postponed. The planning committee has determined that the best course of action for the summit is to postpone the 2020 event to 2021. We will plan to host a similar event in the summer of 2021 (exact timing tbd). This was not an easy decision to make, but everyone’s health and safety are of the utmost importance to us. We will miss seeing you all and learning about the outdoor classroom, but will look forward to seeing you next year.

Registration is now closed. Click here for Project GREEN Summit 2020 info and registration.

We are currently accepting proposals for presenters, speakers, and breakout session leaders for the replacement 2021 Summmit. Click here and fill out the form provided if you are interested in participating.

About Me

Hi, I’m Blake Schnebly and I believe in SustainingUS. I started this organization to create positive changes. I grew up in Hailey, ID and I have spent most of my life loving the outdoors and the outdoor classroom. I believe in experiential education, from-scratch cooking, local food, sustainable consumption, and the power of community. I received my Bachelor’s from Colorado College in Environmental Science with an emphasis in chemistry. I earned my Master’s degree in Environmental Horticulture, with an ecosystem restoration focus from the University of Washington. I moved back to Idaho and landed in Boise where I found that there is need to create more sustainable communities and lifestyles.
