Help build a sustainable, comprehensive green school movement across the United States
Eco-Schools USA is an internationally acclaimed program that provides a framework to help educators integrate sustainable principles throughout their schools and curriculum. This international initiative is designed to encourage whole-school action for the environment. Through school-based action teams of students, administrators, educators and community volunteers, Eco-Schools USA combines effective "green" management of the school grounds, the facilities and the curriculum.
Eco-Schools USA strives to make environmental awareness and action an intrinsic part of the life and culture of a school, engaging students, teachers, administrative staff, non-teaching staff and the local community. Eco-Schools USA works to extend learning beyond the classroom and develop responsible environmental attitudes and commitments, both at home and in the wider community. When integrated into core curricula or used as an integrating theme across the curriculum, Eco-Schools USA programming can have a measurably positive impact on student achievement not only in science, but also in reading, math, and social studies.
When you help a school register, it will join an international network of 41,000 schools and 12 million students in 53 nations. Your donation to the Eco-Schools USA program will provide resources for schools to reduce waste, conserve resources, increase energy savings, improve academic performance, and support vital conservation and education programs.
