David Lanham

Through his work at Planet Connect, and it’s parent organization, the National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF), David Lanham is striving to increase environmental literacy among high school students. Realizing that education is often the most effective way to ensure long term positive change, David has been instrumental in expanding the organization’s connection with high school students - through annual student green grants, a green internship database and a brand new video contest for students to show how they are reducing their carbon footprint. Combined with his degree in Public Policy from the College of William and Mary, and his prior work experience in the U.S. Department of Treasury, David seeks to implement positive change on both the community and national levels - through public and private partnerships. A lifelong outdoors enthusiast, David hopes to use his experience and knowledge to generate lasting positive change.
