Founder, President, and Chief Innovation Officer at EcoRise, Gina Lamotte describes a new LEED prep program in collaboration with the U.S. Green Building Council and the Center for Green Schools. The program educates students about LEED, so they may eventually take the LEED Green Associate test, which gives students the opportunity to step in as leaders in their community to help create systems change.

Gina says that “when you tug at one small thing, it’s attached to everything in the world. That is a level of consciousness that motivates my entire life.” She explains that this is something crucial all students should keep with them.
