NSHSS co-founder Claes Nobel, who was known to use Good Earth to you! as his favorite greeting, encouraged all of us to treat every day as if it were Earth Day by taking action and doing our part to preserve, protect, and tend to this beautiful planet we call home.

For Earth Day this year, NSHSS will host an annual virtual panel featuring three NSHSS environmental changemakers with moderation by Captain Planet! Each student panelist earned a grant or award for their creative solutions to the environmental issues in their communities and the globe!

Panelists to be announced!

“In the grand scheme of life, the good earth is our most cherished prize. I like to greet people by saying, ‘Good Earth!’ Say it now. Out loud! GOOD EARTH! It feels good. Those positive feelings (caused by endorphins) can help you do great things.” –Claes Nobel, NSHSS Co-founder

Claes Nobel: "Celebrate Earth Day Every Day."

Claes Nobel, of the Nobel Prize family and Co-founder of NSHSS, was a passionate advocate for environmental causes. In fact, his favorite greeting was “Good Earth to you!" He encouraged all of us to treat every day as if it were Earth Day by taking action and doing our part to preserve, protect, and tend to this wonderful planet we call home.
