Green Schools & Environmental Education




HIGHLIGHTS



Environmental Education

Environmental education engages students and raises achievement in science, math, language arts, and social studies. It also prepares them for the growing green workforce, provides service learning opportunities with the greater community, and creates a new generation of environmental stewards.

Green Schools

Green school facilities are healthier for students and school staff and improve learning and working conditions. They also save money and natural resources, and can become a “living lab” that provide hands-on opportunities for experiential learning.

A Collaborative Approach

Green schools and environmental literacy are supported by the NEA Foundation through its Green Grants programs, the NEA Health Information Network through its Indoor Environmental Quality programs, and partner organizations of the National Education Association.
