The Green Schools Alliance invites you to our 2018 Champion of Change Gala!

The Alliance’s annual Champion of Change Gala honors an individual or organization that has been an instrument of fundamental change in areas that reflect the vision, mission, and initiatives of our organization. The award celebrates those whose extraordinary accomplishments through a commitment to business, philanthropy, or partnerships has altered the course of our world and empowers others to serve as “change agents” in their own communities.
