At the age of 15, Jordan Howard was a skeptic of the environmental movement even as a freshman at the Environmental Charter High School in Los Angeles, California.
While taking a Green Ambassadors class, Jordan learned that she was only resistant to the green movement because she was uneducated on the components of climate change and most importantly, the solutions.
She was inspired by solutions! Learning about the economic benefits, environmental justice and the relations to marginalized communities, empowered Jordan to educate people of all ages on the importance and positive effects of living sustainably.
Jordan was blessed to be a student at a green charter school during its greening. She has directed award winning student-powered films with the Green Ambassadors Productions and President Obama’s Race to the Top initiative.
Jordan led and organized Rise above Plastics “Student Speaker Series” through the Surfrider Foundation where she trained high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors to give a presentation on the harms and solutions of disposable plastics on the environment and human body.
