Mayor Annise Parker designates teens as Green Ambassadors
Students unite to promote global youth environmental awareness, will travel to China

Houston Mayor Annise Parker and the City Council will honor a dozen high school students and faculty advisers from the Greater Houston Area by naming them Green Ambassadors of Houston. The event will take place at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 13.

"It is important to provide students with opportunities to be engaged in the future of our city,” said Mayor Parker. “Our Green Student Ambassador program with Green Team America is a partnership that will provide students with positive leadership opportunities that cultivate their interests in sustainable development, civic engagement and volunteerism."

An eco-trip to visit Beijing and Shanghai, from July 26 to Aug. 4, is sponsored by Mr. and Mrs. Frank Liu as part of the Green Team America international outreach program. The goal is to jump-start a youth movement to radically alter lifestyles and energy consumption around the planet.

Clements High School senior Steffi Hu, a member of the delegation, is already in Shanghai and will attend the “International Youth Summit on Energy and Climate Change” at the World Expo, which focuses on urban strategies and sustainable development. The rest of the group will depart on July 26 and later join Mayor Parker at the opening ceremony of Houston Day at the World Expo.

The 10-day excursion will include trips to the old Great Wall and the new Shanghai Port, allowing students to absorb the culture of the country as well as advanced environmental programs and projects that illustrate Chinese awareness of the global problem. The group will actively blog their experiences throughout the excursion at http://greenteamamerica.wordpress.com.

“Some people consider us too young to be so serious about the global condition, but I want to remind everyone that we, the students of the world, are the ones who will inherit the environmental problems raging out of control,” Hu, the Clements High School senior, said upon her arrival in China. “It is up to us to do something about them, before it really is too late”.

On July 17, from 3 to 5 p.m., Green Team America will host a Bon Voyage Open House to bid farewell to Houston’s Green Ambassadors. The members of the delegation will greet guests and share information about the upcoming trip.

Fitsum Abuye of Lee High School is looking forward to meeting Chinese students, sharing ideas, and discussing environmental issues. “I am so excited about visiting China for the first time,” Abuye said.

The sponsoring entity for the eco-trip program, entitled Project GLOBE, is Green Team America. GTA is dedicated to uniting environmental clubs at approximately 30,000 high schools across the U.S. When fully united, GTA will be reminiscent of the old Civilian Conservation Corps from the Roosevelt Administration era, when literally millions of young Americans all worked together to solve a national crisis.
