Leadership and Environmental Action Forum

This past weekend, EarthTeam, StopWaste.Org and the Alameda County Office of Education hosted LEAF- the Leadership and Environmental Action Forum.


LEAF provided a venue for students from across the East Bay to share best practices in environmental service-learning projects with each other while also learning new leadership skills from local non-profit organizations.


Students taught workshops in paper making, native plant gardens, Green Career Academies, urban farming, campus recycling systems, solar energy, and more.  Participating schools are members of the Service-Learning Waste Reduction Project and have been working all year to reduce waste and improve environmental awareness at school, at home and in the community.


Photos, workshop descriptions, waste reduction resources, and samples of student work are available at http://schools.stopwaste.org
