Girl Scouts Forever Green Celebrates ENERGY STAR Day


Girl Scouts Forever Green is proud to announce that in celebration of ENERGY STAR Day, the Environmental Protection Agency is hosting its first-ever live broadcast on Facebook! On October 23, the EPA will feature our "Youth Change Agents: Real Stories of Young People Making a Difference in Protecting Our Climate" panel discussion live via Facebook and the ENERGY STAR Products Partner Meeting for Lighting, Appliances and Electronics. Sue Williams, national operational volunteer and co-manager of Girl Scouts Forever Green, will discuss our Girl Scouts Forever Green 100th Anniversary Take Action Project, and Youth Change Agent Sarah Jo Lambert, a Girl Scout Gold Award recipient from Texas and now a student at the University of Nebraska, will be interviewed.

This session will showcase the amazing ways young people nationwide are learning about protecting the climate and using those lessons to make their homes and communities more energy efficient. We invite you to join virtually and see how educating today's youth can make a difference for years to come.
