Broadway Stages Gina Argento envisions a future of green education and sustainable energy in New York City. Inspired to promote the exploration of green energy options, Gina Argento partnered with NYSunWorks(NYSW) to promote use of sustainable energy and environmental stewardship.

The 6th Annual Youth Conference held by NYSW highlights student scientific achievement through self-conducted scientific research.

Helping endorse future environmental friendly solutions, Annett offers intimate knowledge and depth on the subjects of climate change and renewable energy that are open to student curiosity.

As a sponsor the NYSW Youth Conference, Gina wants to inspire young minds to think about the well-being of our planet.
