National Green Week begins February 4, and the Green Education Foundation is ready to help K-12 teachers with ideas and activities for the classroom.
National Green Week empowers students to be leaders of their own sustainability campaigns. Schools and groups are encouraged to take this opportunity to spend time with students discussing issues around sustainability and what they can do to make a difference.
Green Education Foundation (GEF) is a national non-profit organization committed to creating a sustainable future through education. GEF aims to identify key factors and impediments influencing sustainability education, evaluate existing approaches, and develop effective educational materials and programs to promote behavior change towards sustainable practices. GEF offers free programs that provide curricula and hands-on activities to inspire K-12 students and teachers to think holistically about global sustainability concerns and solutions.
