Sustainablity Symposium

    The Sustainability Symposium is an all day event that started in 2008 by three seniors. It brings local "green" organizations and companies from around Oregon to Riverdale High School, offering workshops and presentations on a variety of topics related to sustainability. The goal of this symposium is to help the Riverdale student body learn to be greener and to show students small changes they can make that have a big impact.
    This effort has led to a ripple effect. THe Sustainability Symposium inspired the Riverdale Green Club to meet requirements for the Oregon Green School Certification. In June 2009 Riverdale High School successfully applied and was a approved as an Oregon Green School.
