A Leader Returns

Younes, a Water Campaign alumni and Youth Environmental leadership Winner has returned for the 2018 Fall Water Campaign. Younes now leads his team of 34 students and counting in Morocco at George Washington Academy.

Last year, George Washington Academy’s Campaign Team fought to reduce plastic bottle usage at his school. The team conducted several activities, including a bottle drive, a taste-test competition between the school’s tap water versus bottled water, and hosted an environmental conference at the school to educate the entire school body about environmental issues and solutions.

Today, Younes met with Grades of Green Mentor, Jordan, to discuss the first steps of this year’s Water Campaign! With the team’s activism and enthusiasm, we foresee great things from the team and we can’t wait to find out their solutions and videos for this year!

Grades of Green is  ecstatic to welcome the first international school to become Grades of Green Certified! A huge shout out to George Washington Academy in Morocco on its Certification. This is such an incredible way for Grades of Green, and George Washington Academy, to kick off the new year.

George Washington Academy has implemented five activities so far including:

Hey George Washington Academy, keep it up! Grades of Green is here to root you on as you tackle more Grades of Green Activities. We encourage you to continue your hard work towards environmental protection at your school. Thank you for all your efforts as you have demonstrated that Grades of Green Certification is possible for any school, anywhere.
