Abstract: 

Have you been looking for ways to integrate responsible, "green" lessons into your classroom, family or life? The No Impact Project offers a free secondary-school curriculum focused on earth-friendly living. Divided into five individual lessons, each co-authored by environmental nonprofit leaders, including the Center for a New American Dream, the No Impact Curriculum focuses on consumption, energy, food, transportation, and water.

Each multi-media lesson incorporates the "No Impact Man" book and film to encourage middle and high school students to explore the effects that their everyday behavior has on the environment, as well as their health and well-being. The lessons also will challenge students to think about how the systems in our present society influence our lifestyle choices in ways that often are detrimental to the environment. Ultimately, this curriculum will guide students to take action both individually and with others to bring about positive change.

The No Impact Project is an international, environmental, nonprofit project, founded in the spring of 2009. It was inspired by the No Impact Man book, film, and blog.
