The Green Education Foundation for K-12 Students

Green Education Foundation (GEF) is committed to creating a sustainable future through the education of students from K-12. GEF provides curriculum and resources for students and teachers worldwide with the goal of challenging youth to think holistically and critically about global environmental concerns and solutions.

GEF couples standards-based curricula with active participation, acknowledging that children learn best through hands-on activities that enhance their critical thinking skills. GEF is a non-profit organization and one of the Web's largest environmental educational communities.

GEF’s annual National Green Week program mobilizes millions of students each year to participate in eco-challenges that empower school communities to achieve measurable and sustainable goals in waste reduction and energy conservation.

The GEF Community provides schools, individuals, classes, groups and sports teams with a way to communicate with one another (either privately or publicly). GEF is also a platform to share environmental best practices in an effort to protect the planet's valuable resources.

GEF members receive ongoing updates to lesson plans and activities, are automatically entered into drawings for free green products (such as garden and compost kits, mini-solar cars and houses, green books and videos) and have access to Green In-Action awards, plus much more.

All GEF's programs are free, participants are able to select the program(s) that are right for their organization.

Participate by creating an account at GEF where you can edit your information, join GEF's Eco-Challenge groups or create a group of your own. Registered participants can share school, class or group projects, photos, videos, stories and more.

Register here for free to gain full access to the GEF library of standards-based lessons and activities.
