The Watershed Report - Update
Co-sponsored by Friends of the Cedar River Watershed and the Lake Forest Park Stewardship Foundation, the Watershed Report will be presented by Shorecrest sophomores Ben Pedigo, Serendipity Ancira, and Wylie Chang, along with Executive Producer and Leadership Coach, Peter Donaldson. Peter was recognized as the 2010 non-formal Environmental Teacher of the Year by the Environmental Education Association of Washington State. Peter is a champion of applied academic excellence in service to community problem solving; the Local Living Textbook.

What is the Watershed Report?
The Watershed Report is a series of short videos that track positive sustainability trends within our Watershed Address, including reports on green building, energy, stormwater, water conservation, sustainable schools and other issues. The Watershed Report videos are narrated entirely by well informed high school students. There are no expert interviews or adult speakers. Leadership students from 10 high schools representing 7 school districts, plus the private school network, analyze and update these elegant and inspiring data narratives on an annual basis.

Comment from Martha Kongsgaard, Leadership Council Chair, Puget Sound Partnership after the 10 school presentation at the Seattle REI on September 8, 2011:

“This work is important and powerful and we need to get it into the hands of decision makers and school kids alike. It’s going to help us as a region embrace a common, durable destiny. The Watershed Report is not just a report or a living textbook on the adult world of policy. These young leaders are setting the terms of the debate and heading us in a new direction, into a new framework for the future.”
