The environmental, social and economic health of our coastal urban areas depends on their integration within healthy, resilient coastal ecosystems.  It will take all of us - students, educators, businesses, and neighborhood associations - to make this happen.  With your help, GHP will continue to provide a green workforce educational system that prepares prepares our students and community residents for green, skilled positions with employers who are now experiencing critical shortages in this area. This project supports the formation and long-term expansion of the ‘green sector’, as any job can become ‘a green job’ if based on green education, eco-literacy and environmental limitations.
