• Washington Gifted Environmental Club
     
    We will meet every other Monday after school.
     
    The Environmental Club is a group of concerned students that are committed to raising awareness about environmental issues, and to reducing our environmental impact as individuals, a school community, and as citizens of the world. Here are some ideas:
    • Hold a “wear green” day.
    • Show an environmental film.
    • Create a green school mural.
    • Deliver environmental presentations to peers.
    • Create environmental tips and memos for your school website, newsletter, bulletin board
    • Promote special occasions like Waste Reduction Week, Environment Week, and Earth Day.
    The UN's Intergovernmental panel on Climate Change has outlined the latest findings in their climate-change report for 2014. 
    Climate change has altered migration, killed off species, made it harder to grow some staple crops and increased the rate of glacial melt. The poor will have a greater chance of malnutrition and disease.
