Retirees in Service to the Environment (RISE)

Posted 5/28/2020


Part of Kendal Values and Practices is a commitment to environmental stewardship. To conservation, sustainability, and leadership. To the appropriate use and conservation of the earth’s resources.

The Retirees in Service to the Environment (RISE) program at Cornell is an environmental education and leadership training program for older adults that promotes environmental volunteerism and stewardship for adults over 60. RISE responds to the intersection of two critical trends – mounting concern about environmental sustainability and the growing aging population. The program provides factual knowledge from expert speakers about pressing environmental issues such as climate change, water quality, soil contaminants, waste management, and energy use. You can learn more online and request the FREE Training Manual.
