In partnership with the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum and Civic ArtWorks, the Illinois Green Alliance is working with high school students in eight Chicago-area schools to answer the question, “What would you do to make your community more sustainable?” as part of the Epic Sustainable Neighborhood Youth Challenge. Additionally, green building and sustainability professionals from the Illinois Green Alliance are mentoring these students by sharing their expertise to develop community-based campaigns to help answer this question.
This list of neighborhood and school-based campaigns for sustainable change created by the students will be updated frequently.
