Great news, you have not missed your chance to be a part of National Green Week, our largest K-12 sustainability education campaign! You can now make any week through May 16—an extension from April 25—your very own Green Week.
National Green Week is our big annual event to empower schools to engage in sustainability focused lessons, projects and activities. The Green Week program is designed to empower school administrators and teachers to actively engage their students on the importance of environmental protection and sustainability through our free lesson plans, activities and audits.
“This was an easy call,” our CEO Victoria Waters said. “How can we deny motivated educators who want their students participating in sustainability initiatives? We are delighted to extend the deadline to accommodate their busy schedules.”
