Green Festival Speakers
Rutan initiated the Washington Green Schools project in 2005 and is the Steering Team lead. She has worked in local government for almost 19 years and currently is the Community Recycling program manager for the City of Seattle. Rutan's passions include her family and friends, music and the written word. She and her husband live in Seattle where they especially delight in their summer PPatch, parenting two young adults and traveling together (most recently to South Africa). I am committed to encouraging young people to effectively realize their capacity to create a world and future that is healthy, hopeful and dynamically alive for themselves and others.
