BOSTON and KING of PRUSSIA, Pa. – Project Green Schools and smart irrigation specialist UgMO announced a partnership to develop water conservation curriculum for K-12 students. The partners will begin curriculum development this August and will sponsor individual projects and the students implementing those initiatives.

The goal of this support is to inspire the next generation of environmental leaders to innovate new ways of driving water conservation and sustainability.

“It’s an honor to partner with the amazing team at Project Green Schools who has already made incredible inroads in inspiring young people across the country to do their part to reduce environmental impact and costs,” said Brian Dalmass. “We look forward to helping to move this mission forward by leveraging our expertise, patented technology and unique, soil-based approach to water conservation.”

Project Green Schools partners with more than 6,300 schools and 500,000 students from over 43 U.S. states and nine countries to facilitate the development of student leaders who have engaged in E-STEAM learning and projects and are pursuing higher education and jobs in the green workforce.

“Our goal is to help students develop the knowledge and skills required for entry to college and later employment focused on developing sustainable solutions,” said Robin Organ, executive director and founder of Project Green Schools. “We believe our partnership with UgMO has the formula for success when it comes to developing the next generation of environmental leaders.”
