Green Beings

Check out this article Carbon Neutral on a Shoestring. Its about an eco-conscious restoration in Barcelona, Spain, a city that has long prized the new and glossy, amounts to a countercultural effort.

Also... The City of Santa Monica and Sustainable Works are sponsoring an Earthday Poster Contest open to all K-12 aged students who live or attend school in Santa Monica. This year's theme is "My Sustainable Community."

The purpose of this contest is to engage students in sustainability education and action, and to offer them an opportunity to share their vision for a clean, green, healthy community.

Educators are encouraged to schedule an in-class or assembly presentation on sustainability where students will be given the information to inspire contest submissions. Presentations can range from 10-20 minutes and will be adapted to specific K-12 age levels. Spanish language presentations are available.

All students and their families will be invited to an art opening where all students will be recognized for their artistic contributions, posters will be displayed and prizes will be awarded. Selected posters will also be displayed at community events and at traveling exhibits in public sites.

All entries are due by April 2, 2009.
