Green Club

Green club is about inspiring the next generation of students to become active and engaged in environmental stewardship. Our goal is to inform the student body about environmental issues and remind our classmates that even the smallest actions can have a huge impact on the world. We plan environmentally friendly events and work with the BSD and city of Bellevue in our projects. While our time at the International School is short, we hope to imprint a philosophy of sustainability in our classmates before time runs out.  Meetings occur during lunch Wednesday on Green days in room 206. Middle and high school members.
