Leadership in Sustainable Education Award
Omega is committed to helping people learn through unique innovative experiences. This award acknowledges other nonprofits who share our commitment to the environment and exemplify leadership in sustainability education. Recipents receive a $10,000 cash award and an organizational development grant for a planning retreat at Omega.
Omega is excited to give the first annual Leadership in Sustainable Education Award to the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater. A longtime leader in sustainability education in the Hudson Valley, Omega's home, Clearwater has been active in protecting the environment by inspiring, educating, and activating people. With programs like the Next Generation Legacy Project, the Green Cities Initiative, and the opportunity for the public to learn about the Hudson River in programs on its two boats—Clearwater and Mystic Whaler—Clearwater carries forward Pete Seeger's dream to develop new leaders to put the "eco" back into "economy."
