Youth Leadership at Maryland Green School
Check out the Maryland Matters article about youth leadership, what is motivating Javier Fuentes to lead the Green Team at his high school.
Last February at the 2021 MAEOE Conference Javier Fuentes was asked to represent the US on a Global Sustainable Schools panel. Other countries included Scotland, Mexico, Australia, and Kenya.
Excerpt from Maryland Matters article:
"Looking back at last February’s Global Sustainability Panel, Javier also broadened his worldview. He learned from research scientist M. Carolina Ceballos Bernal, with the Centro de Investigación en Alimentación y Desarrollo, a Mexican research food and development institute, that she had created an environmental education curriculum, but there was no public policy in place to enforce it.
Javier said he was inspired that she kept fighting to bring the program to life."
