Here we are in September!  Hope you had a beautiful summer.

RCE representatives from across the Americas had a fun and productive time at the RCEs of the Americas Conference, in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  We thank Mayor Heartwell and his team for sharing their amazing city with us!

Check out the conference website for videos of the different regional/national presentations, photos, and the development of an impressive action plan for helping create a sustainable future.

Also, if you missed AASHE's webinar on how to plan for Campus Sustainability Month, you can view the recording and other materials on the AASHE website. Campus Sustainability Month extends beyond formal education institutions and will offer many great events throughout our region, so keep it on your radar. More AASHE webinars are on their way too. Check out the details below.

Now, as we enter September, events really start kicking up.  Are you interested in being a part of GPSEN's Think Tank?  How about our EcoChallenge team?  It's a great chance to build community and make a difference!  And be sure to mark your calendars for this quarter's GPSEN Partner Meeting, on September 30. We are timing it with the release of the Sustainable Development Goals, so it is a perfect opportunity to think about how to align our local efforts with broader international goals.

Thank you for all that you do to keep hope alive.  Who you are and what you do really matters!
