Happy Earth Day!

22 Apr Happy Earth Day!

This year, National Environmental Education Week is kicked off on April 22, 2019, Earth Day!

The Earth Day Network is asking people to join our Protect Our Species Earth Day campaign to:

  • Educate and raise awareness about the accelerating rate of extinction of millions of species and the causes and consequences of this phenomenon.
  • Achieve major policy victories that protect broad groups of species as well as individual species and their habitats.
  • Build and activate a global movement that embraces nature and its values.
  • Encourage individual actions such as adopting plant based diet and stopping pesticide and herbicide use.

NEEF’s National Environmental Education Week is the nation’s largest celebration of environmental education (also known as EE). NEEF partners with educators, students, government agencies, businesses, communities, nonprofit organizations, and others to inspire environmental learning and encourage stewardship of our essential resources: land, air, and water.

NEEF is launching the updated “Greening STEM” toolkit, which helps educators use the natural environment and real-world challenges to engage learners and deliver high-quality STEM education. We will also have updated educational EE resources, infographics, and reading lists.
