Getting Ready for Rockland PLUS 2022

Workshops Begin 2/1/22!

Now in its 17th year, RPLUS (Rockland PLUS) is a powerful educational experience for local high school youth. It prepares them to make informed choices for a sustainable future and gives them a forum to think and work creatively for the collective well-being of the environment and our communities.

This year, we have even more opportunities for student input. We’re highlighting inspiring examples of the power of the youth voice, especially when it comes to addressing climate change at all levels and creating climate smart communities.

We’re back in the classroom for Rockland PLUS workshops! And we’re very excited to be able to host symposiums for each of the participating classes – though once again at a distance.

We can’t wait to share the student’s visions for local redevelopment that promotes a balance of Social connections, Economic opportunity, Environmental sensitivity, and Equitable access to natural and community resources (S.E.E.E.). Check out some from last year.
