RISE Engineering was happy to be a sponsor and attend the Rhode Island Environmental Education Association (RIEEA) Annual Summit, Trees for the People: Environmental Justice for Rhode Island’s Frontline Communities, this past Saturday.
The event included a keynote address by Joann Ayuso, Kufa Castro, and Tonay Gooday-Ervin about tree equity and environmental justice, group roundtable discussions led by RIEEA community members, award presentations, and a post networking portion with other sponsors. Corporations, non-profits, individuals, etc. all share a responsibility to make changes and support all communities in environmental stewardship. RISE is proud to have energy efficiency initiatives that focus on supporting economic justice zones as well as women & minority-owned businesses.
RIEEA is a collaborative network of individuals and organizations committed to promoting high-quality environmental education throughout the state in order to increase the environmental literacy of all children and adults.
