Green Apple Day of Service
We all have a passion for education. Where we learn matters. The USGBC-Illinois Chapter and the National Center for Green Schools is inviting communities from around the world to take action on school campuses for the Third Annual Green Apple Day of Service in Fall 2014.
On the Day of Service, we are encouraging Chapter Members, students, teachers, and administrators to plan a school/university wide sustainability project, while utilizing local volunteers to create a positive environmental change.

Each interested school/university will identify a low to no cost project that fulfills an unmet environmental need. Schools will then submit an application that details their potential idea. Past events have included planting school gardens, collaborating on clean-ups, or hosting e-waste recycling drives. Schools also have the option to create a custom project that caters more to their community’s specific needs. After a school submits an application, USGBC-Illinois will assist in optional mentor pairing and volunteer recruiting. View Project Suggestions.
While the immediate impact of these service projects may result in energy/water savings, cleaner air, or healthier learning environments; USGBC-Illinois hopes to create a better and more sustainable relationship between schools and their surrounding communities. Our goal is to create awareness on the importance of green schools and propel a movement of sustainable lifestyle within our youth and generations to come. Schools are invited to identify green projects, and share their success stories on the My Green Apple Website.
