Student Environmental Development Program Class of 2009
Administrator Jackson spoke to the 2009 graduating class of the Student Environmental Development Program (SEDP). The SEDP is an environmental education and leadership development program for students ages from 12-14 from diverse backgrounds. Below are excerpts from her remarks:
“The SEDP program is a unique opportunity for you to learn about things that will benefit you for years to come – for you to be part of the changes coming. You are already ahead of the curve. Most students your age don’t get the chance to work in an office building and to interact with scientists, engineers, toxicologists, computer specialists and others who are helping to protect our environment. We’re hard at work to protect the planet for your future, but you have a role to play as well.
The advances like cell phones, the internet, and social media that I talked about earlier have given you the ability to change your world unlike any generation before. It’s up to you to decide what the years ahead are going to look like.”
