optional June 6th “day in the forest” with Project Learning Tree (details coming soon)
Mission/Vision: The goal of Project G.R.E.E.N. (Green Resources for Environmental Education and Networking) is to encourage sustainability in Southwestern Idaho and beyond by supporting K-12 educators. More specifically, PGB is designed to: provide an opportunity for educator networking and making connections to encourage communication outside of the Summit, inform and engage the teachers with available resources throughout the state, and provide a venue for the dissemination of current information and resources from the stakeholders/experts in the community (providing a united group of goals and objectives).
The 2020 Project GREEN Summit will be hosted by the Basin School District in Idaho City, ID! The theme is GET OUT! Rediscovering the Original Classroom. Idaho provides so many opportunities in the outdoors, and we will focus on strategies for using our outdoor classroom. Additionally, we will look at the unique challenges faced by rural and remote school districts and invite teachers from Idaho and beyond to join us. Rideshare opportunities from Boise and camping in the forest on-site will be available for participants. Other lodging offerings coming soon.
The 2019 Project GREEN Teacher Summit was a great success! Over the two day event, we had great speakers and breakout presenters, but the shining stars were several impressive groups of students who displayed leadership, learning, and the desire to create their own sustainable future by finding successes in their schools with supportive mentors and administrators.
Thank you to everyone who helped plan the event and all our attendees, and a special thank you to our keynote speaker Dennis Nelson, President & CEO of Project WET!
