Fairgreen Students & Dii Energy Leaders Power the Next Solar Star

Fairgreen middle school students recently had an outstanding opportunity to develop leadership skills and showcase their clean energy projects at the 9th Annual Dii Desert Energy Leadership Summit. Students represented Fairgreen, Million Solar Stars, Roots & Shoots, and The Sustainable City in Dubai.

Not only did young change-makers present innovative ideas like a bicycle and solar powered ‘Smoothie Factory’, they also demonstrated how they are helping develop a step-by-step logic model to scale up solar power at Fairgreen and other schools in the Middle East and around the world.  Students are building solar models for hands-on learning and then scaling up to pilot and commercial solar arrays.

Thank you Dr. Jane Goodall for your inspiration with Roots & Shoots and the Million Tree Project. Dozens of energy industry influencers and policy makers at the Dii Energy Summit took the Million Solar Stars Pledge to help inspire one million students as #SolarStars to take action and expand solar power to 100% of schools around the world.  Please consider taking the pledge to support connecting schools with solar resources and involving students in the process of deploying clean energy. 

And thank you to Dii Desert Energy Leadership Summit event organizers who shared EXPO table space and the big stage with Fairgreen students and teachers.  We greatly appreciate Dii inviting us to such a high level event and helping Power the Next Solar Star!
