Incorporating environmental sustainability practices into our everyday lives is a vital part of preserving our planet’s natural beauty and resources. This concept lies at the heart of the identity and mission of Rancho Margot, a self-sustained farm located in the heart of Costa Rica, a country leading these efforts. Bring your students to a webinar hosted by Juan Sostheim, founder and owner of Rancho Margot, to learn about how the ranch helps protect our environment (the entire ranch only produces 2 garbage bags a week!) and learn ways you and your students can incorporate environmental sustainability practices into your everyday lives to make your homes, schools and communities greener. Students will also learn more about the Siemens We Can Change the World Challenge, a national sustainability competition that empowers students in grades K-12 to develop and share environmental solutions that can help change the world.
