Last weekend, the Greenpeace Student Board traveled to upstate New York for our annual board retreat. In addition to the board members' local organizing efforts, being full time college students, and jobs, they commit several hours per month supporting Student Network campaigns and trainings across the country. We spent the weekend plotting, brushing up on our organizing skills and thinking of big ideas.
But I promise the retreat wasn't all business. We did have the opportunity to freshen up on our Lady Gaga dance moves and learn about Greenpeace's Quaker roots from our Quaker hosts. But don't take my word for it, check out our film making ability for yourself. It could easily be mistaken for an ESPN pre-game player's video.
If you want to get involved as a leader with the Student Network, shoot us a note at email@example.com.
