The Greene School Class of 2017 embarked on a yearlong project on sustainable development that resulted in a 37-minute documentary called “Who Farms the Wind.”

Throughout the school year, the students, “examined the sustainability of Rhode Island’s own social, financial, and environmental aspects through the study of historical patterns, science-based ocean development plans, and local interviews.”

Not only did their extensive research lead to a student-made documentary about the stakeholders of the Block Island wind farm, but these seniors also created a curriculum for middle school students and a website for all youth audiences about wind energy.

The Greene School seniors’ work was featured at The Rhode Island Future Energy Symposium this past April to, “educate the future generation to show them what can be done to help.” Great job Class of 2017!
