Green Schools & Environmental Education
- Explore new and review familiar ways to live responsibly
- Philippe Cousteau, Jr., a partner of NEA’s “Green Across America”, explores the importance of engaging school-aged students to navigate the fight to save the planet.
- How to raise a generation that cares.
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 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.
