This video is a response to an ad Toys “R” Us ran in 2013. Our version, called Trees R Us, was filmed at the Juniper Hill School for place-based education in Alna, Maine. Anne Stires, who is featured in the video, is the founding School Director at the Juniper Hill School. She earned her MEd from Antioch University New England where she focused on place-based education.

Please join us to celebrate Peace Corps Week and AUNE’s international community. This event is free and open to the public. Returned Peace Corps Volunteers, Peace Corps Invitees, international students, and all those interested in any aspect of Peace Corps are encouraged to attend. If you are considering Peace Corps or are in the application process, this will be a great opportunity to hear from those who have already completed Peace Corps service. This will also be an excellent opportunity to learn about AUNE’s programs offered in partnership with the Peace Corps, including the Master’s International program, which combines graduate study with Peace Corps service, and the Coverdell Fellows program for returned Peace Corps volunteers.
There will be a themed “Story-Slam”. Please bring a story to share from one of your initial experiences in country, or a story about your return home! If you have not yet served you are encouraged to tell a story of working or volunteering in a cross-cultural situation.
Food will be available in a pot-luck atmosphere. Attendees are invited to bring a dish from their country of service, their country of origin, or a country they have a connection too. Whether or not you have a dish to share, please stop by and join in the celebration!
The Green Schools National Network has created a “culture of collaboration,” as a result of year-round networking and partnerships, and through an annual national conference. We bring together like-minded people committed to the creation and support of healthy, green and sustainable schools.
As the only national conference bringing together experts and stakeholders to influence sustainability throughout K-12 schools and school districts, the annual Green Schools National Conference has grown in terms of attendance and scope. Colleagues who share their passion and offer their own green schools experiences are put together in a true collaborative event with thought leaders and early adopters of green school best practices. Attendees are passionate about transforming schools and the way they operate. The annual conference is designed to allow attendees to learn about creative strategies for success and to take home real-life tools that can transform schools.
Our recent conference in Sacramento continued our modus operandi in planning these annual events. Our planning process not only attracts ‘green’ advocates from across the country, but we work to include local green school representatives, advocates, and support organizations based in and around the conference venue. In California, we worked closely with HealthCorps and the Collaborative for High Performance Schools in developing programming and showcasing success stories that would inspire and motivate conferees.
