District 3 Green Schools Group
In 2009, a dozen schools in District 3, on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, got together to trade ideas about how to build environmental awareness, reduce waste, conserve resources, and grow the NYC school sustainability movement.
They named themselves The District 3 Green Schools Group. The Group, founded by then D3 parent Jennifer Freeman, and comprised of parent volunteers in schools throughout the district – meets monthly to share ideas, present guest speakers, and plan projects and events.
District 3 Green Schools Group members have organized an array of model waste reduction, recycling, energy conservation, and educational initiatives. Contact the District 3 Green Schools Group at D3GreenSchools@yahoogroups.com.
