Using environmental topics in the classroom provides an opportunity for students to learn school subjects while exploring interesting challenges and sharpening critical thinking skills.
As they study lessons in relation to the environment, students make connections about real-world applications of the material, taking the learning experience beyond the classroom setting to expand their development as students, leaders, and members of the community.
The mission of National Environmental Education Week (EE Week) is to connect educators with resources to promote K-12 students' understanding of the environment. We provide support to educators through professional development opportunities, including webinars, and by maintaining a running list of available grants and awards in EE.
EE Week's online webinar archive offers talks and presentations with some of the leading minds in EE. Check out what topics have already been discussed and see what's coming next!
