Join Natural Pod, VMDO Architects and ShawContract on Giving Tuesday while we each match donations up to $2500 USD for the Green Schools National Network (GSNN) to raise funds for the work and research GSNN do to further the green schools movement and accelerate student achievement through the implementation of green, healthy, and sustainable practices.
Natural Pod, VMDO Architects and ShawContract are supporting GSNN because we each deeply believe in the importance of creating healthy, inspiring learning environments by sustainable means and that GSNN is making a real difference to the health of schools, people, and the planet.
