  •  Goals of the Sustainability Decahlon

    Thursday, Feb. 12, 2009

    I think that the goal of the Sustainability Decathlon is to primarily teach and inspire high school students to be environmentally conscious and live sustainable lifestyles. I feel that the most important thing that must be taught to the students is that they can all make a difference, not only in their actions, but also in their words, as they can pass on the ideas they have learned from their mentors to others. I feel that this sort of empowerment is a crucial element to this project.
