In February, Green Newton invited Newton high school students to write essays on the theme “Students Taking Climate Action” and they were asked to submit them to Green Newton by the end of Earth Week. We saw this as an opportunity for students to voice their concerns and inspire others to make a difference by suggesting solutions that can benefit our environment.
Three essays were chosen to be published:
- Joyce Lee: Nature, Our Hope for Rehabilitation
- Esther Zhang: Small Actions, Big Changes
- Elie Berman: Lessons to Take on Climate Justice from the Coronavirus
In a raffle drawing, two students were chosen to each receive a $50 gift certificate from Green Newton to use at a local shop or restaurant of their choice: Aidan Lieberman and Esther Zhang.
Thank you to each of the students who participated in this Green Newton activity to honor our organization’s 30th Anniversary!
