Jeanne and Dick Roy are passing the torch to younger leaders of the Eco-School Movement they started.

COURTESY OF ECO-SCHOOL NETWORK - Jeanne and Dick Roy, local giants of the sustainability movement, are passing the torch to a new generation of leaders. Jeanne and Dick Roy, pioneers of Portland's sustainability movement, will be honored at a Passing the Torch event sponsored by the Eco-School Movement.

The event, on Oct. 26, will also celebrate the independent launch of the Eco-School Movement, started by the Roys, thanks to funding from the Meyer Memorial Trust, Rose E. Tucker Charitable Trust, Juan Young Trust, Herbert A. Templeton Foundation and the Jackson Foundation.

Few people have made such an impact on Oregon's environmental movement. Since 1993, the Roys have founded and helped lead numerous nonprofits and green groups, including Chess for Success, Northwest Earth Institute, Master Recycler Program, Oregon Natural Step Network, the Center for Earth Leadership, Oregon Lawyers for a Sustainable Future and Portlanders for Outdoor School.

The celebration takes place Friday, Oct. 26, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., at Miller Hall at the World Forestry Center.

It will feature dinner, live music and a silent auction.
