NH’s First Lady Valerie Sununu (and FOBH board members) in partnership with Project Green Schools created The Bridges House Youth Sustainability Council (BHYSC.) The goal of this council is to bring together environmentally-conscious and “green-minded” middle and high school students from across the Granite State to participate in the council. Students and essential members of our NH community met for two meetings in 2018 as well as took part in our Green Expo. First Lady Sununu; Robin Organ of Project Green Schools; FOBH board members, wonderful NH students, administrators, educators, business leaders; and others gathered at The Bridges House to network and created a platform for access and resources in greening-up their schools and communities. The Youth Council will serve as an auditing body to make sure The Bridges House is setting an impeccable example for sustainable events and home management. We believe that the path toward a greener and more sustainable future is through community-driven projects. We are excited to provide support and potential funding for these student initiatives because we know they will be our future leaders and entrepreneurs. We know they can impact peers, as well as their community. The Youth Council will have opportunities to discuss their concerns about the environment with the leaders of government and business in their state.
