Abstract: 

Founded by the organizers of the first Earth Day in 1970, Earth Day Network (EDN) promotes environmental citizenship and year round progressive action worldwide.

Our mission is to grow and diversify the environmental movement worldwide, and to mobilize it as the most effective vehicle for promoting a healthy, sustainable planet. We pursue our mission through education, politics, events, and consumer activism.

END offers groundbreaking environmental education programs - Earth Day Network's GREEN Schools Campaign (http://edu.earthday.org/) will seek to green all of America's k-12 schools within a generation. EDN uses innovative education tools to promote civic participation and to develop a sense of environmental responsibility among all citizens.

Our programs and activities inform and inspire young people and people of color to become environmental leaders. In its pilot 2005-2006 school year, the National Civic Education Project empowered students in Cincinnati to push their school board to adopt green building practices. This powerful program continues to grow, providing young people with the skills, pride and passion they need to address environmental health issues affecting their communities.

You'll find over 300 standard-based lessons, school greening tips, grants for teachers, and more than 25,000 teachers to share ideas with.
