Madison Students to Star in Madison Environmental Commission Green Vision Forum

School Garden_GVF IdeaMadison, NJ – February 22, 2021 – The Madison Environmental Commission is hosting the third annual Green Vision Forum virtually via Zoom on Wednesday March 24 at 6:30pm. The stars of the evening will be students from Madison’s elementary, junior and high schools, along with students from Drew University, Fairleigh Dickinson University and Saint Elizabeth University. 

School green teams will share their vision for a greener Madison. “This is an exciting opportunity for students to explore environmental topics that inspire them to make change in their schools, campuses and communities.” says event organizer Kirsten Wallenstein of the Environmental Commission. “It is amazing to see the positive impact these student leaders have on Madison. Past projects have motivated residents to take environmental actions by skipping the straw, remembering their reusable water bottle, or starting to compost.”

Mayor Bob Conley, Borough Council Members, and other town officials will attend the event, which will be held virtually for the first time. “I am thrilled that the Green Vision Forum will go on despite the pandemic,” says Mayor Conley. “These students and future leaders demonstrate a passion for improving the environment with creative ideas for taking action.”

“I am looking forward to hearing the student’s ideas.” says John Hoover, the Borough Council Member who serves as the Environmental Commission’s liaison. “The student enthusiasm always makes this event an inspiring learning experience for town officials, educators and the public.”
