Environmental education
Environmental education (EE) teaches children and adults how to learn about and investigate their environment, and to make intelligent, informed decisions about how they can take care of it. Learning about the environment involves many subjects - earth science, biology, chemistry, social studies, even math and language arts - because understanding how the environment works, and keeping it healthy, involves knowledge and skills from many disciplines. EE not only leads to environmentally literate people, but also helps increase student academic achievement.

  • That their daily choices affect the environment
  • How those choices can help or harm the environment
  • What they need to do -individually or as part of a community -to keep the environment healthy and sustain its resources, so that people enjoy a good quality of life for themselves and their children.
