Sidsel Robards

Senior Director Development and Events


Born and raised in Denmark, Mrs. Robards enjoyed a successful career as an international fashion model before retiring to focus on other interests. Her children inspired her to get actively involved in improving climate education, which lead her to co-found The Greenhouse Project in 2008. After several years of volunteering Mrs. Robards joined the NYSW staff in 2013 where she is responsible for partnership alliances and the expansion of The Greenhouse Project Initiative to partner schools. She also oversees fundraising events, strategic partnerships and is the organization’s Public Relations liaison.
