OMG Founders Meet with Under Secretary for Economic Growth, Energy
Olivia and Carter were invited back to the State Department to meet with Under Secretary Catherine Novelli to present our Plastic and Recycling Awareness Curriculum. Last month the kids attended the “Our Oceans” conference and suggested that education be included in the State Departments oceans strategy. Under Secretary Novelli was intrigued and asked the kids to come and elaborate more on their work.
OMG has partnered with the folks at TerraMar and Jason Learning in an effort to ensure our curriculum is made available to the largest student audience possible. Together we will be launching an exciting new way for students to learn about the issue of plastic pollution in a fun and interactive platform. Stay tuned to more on the partnership and on the Department of State’s involvement. To learn more about TerraMar and Jason learning, please visit their websites here:
