Sustainability literacy is particularly important for children and families living in marginalized communities, and yet many sustainable living guides focus on the middle income households. That's why our school Founder put together a list of sustainability exercises that are convenient, affordable and accessible enough for teachers to introduce to students of all backgrounds. http://ow.ly/LBvy30aea55

Climate change is drastically changing America's national parks—mountains that were once snow-topped will become rocky and barren, and our nation's iconic wetlands, forests and glaciers will disappear completely is climate action is not taken seriously. Find out what will come of our national parks in the next 100 years if steps aren't taken to combat climate change. http://ow.ly/nrOm303ydVR

Sustainability for education is not just growing in popularity with private and charter schools—even public schools are adjusting to a greener future. Take these two Chicago public school students as an example: they created a "food computer" that allows their school to grow local, organic fruits and veges in insulated boxes. They developed the concept for this invention from within their school's Food Science Lab. The green revolution is near! http://ow.ly/ie96303ydas

Leather fashion goods are luxury staples for most Americans. When trying on leather jackets and bags, few people stop to remember that leather is made from animal skin, or realize that it's adding to our water pollution and climate change problem. This startup was created to provide us with a better option: MycoWorks is using mycelium from mushrooms—yes, the vegetable that people eat—to create biodegradable leather goods. Who says fashion can't be good for your wardrobe and the planet! http://ow.ly/Nq2D303yc5j

In an effort to make computer science more accessible to women and minorities, the College Board is launching a new AP Computer Science Principles course. Unlike their established offering, this new course will teach computing with a focus on creative and collaborative thinking. Basic knowledge of programming languages won't be required for placement in this course. It's exactly what schools like ours, which serve marginalized communities, need to help our students realize their full potential in and after college! http://ow.ly/uxya303ybvF

Last Spring, six juniors from BOGCHS enrolled in a Topics in Sustainability course at Kean University. This opportunity is the result of our newly launched BOGCHS On Campus program. It provides an opportunity for students to earn college credit and gain firsthand college experience. What better way to prepare them for the college experience that awaits them? http://ow.ly/Ik4c303GCat
