Abbey Road Programs: ON GLOBAL WARMING!
Abbey Road has answered the call to go green with its Tree Per Trip and Green Ticket programs for students.
“President Obama has called for Americans to do more for the environment,” said Abbey Road Programs’ founder and President, Dr. Arthur Kian. “We’re doing our part, and we challenge other travel study and educational programs to do the same.”
Abbey Road Programs will plant one tree for every student who travels with the company this summer as part of its Tree Per Trip Program.
Abbey Road’s Green Ticket Scholarship is available to students ages 14-18 who have exhibited a commitment to the environment through their school or community. One full, all expenses paid Green Ticket Scholarship and two partial (airfare paid) scholarships will be offered in 2009.
Students who have done work in the areas of global warming, biodiversity, ecosystem preservation, toxic waste reduction, deforestation, energy conservation, recycling, preservation of endangered species are encouraged to apply to the Green Ticket Scholarship Program.
Over 600 students participated in Abbey Road programs in the summer of 2012.
