Connect on the Quest

Connect on the Quest is a monthly virtual gathering for school leads and mentors participating in the Green Schools Quest. It is also open to educators who are not yet participating, but would like to learn about the program and sustainability projects taking place in area schools.

It is an opportunity to:

  • Share your Green Schools Quest journey with fellow participants!
  • Hear directly from others on how they engaged students in the previous month’s challenge.
  • Explore ideas for the current and upcoming challenge themes.
  • Seek suggestions and resources to advance your school’s sustainability efforts.
  • Provide general input on the program.

The gathering will kick off with short presentations by participating schools. Are you interested in presenting? Please submit a proposal!

Rainbow of Sustainability Primer

The 2020-21 Green Schools Quest draws upon the principles outlined in the Rainbow of Sustainability. With this in mind, we recommend that Connect on the Quest participants have some familiarity with the Rainbow of Sustainability prior to the event.

Any registrants who are not yet familiar are asked to please review this flyer which provides an overview of this year’s program format and view the pre-recorded presentation: Applying the Rainbow of Sustainability prior to the event.
