Green Schools Earth Fair
I spent Earth Day at the Green Schools Earth Fair in Rabat. Every child at the local “green school” was involved in the Earth Day celebration, from the kindergarteners to the high-schoolers. Their curriculum covers sustainability, water purification, wind and solar power. But these kids don’t just study the environment—they also work to preserve it. They plant trees at and around their school as well as clean up local neighborhoods and beaches. It was a joy to work with these kids, as well as meet President Hassan and Governor Haoudi. We even planted a tree in my honor! Lucky me.
I hope you all had a productive, reflective Earth Day, too.
