About Know Green, Go Green

Growing out of the first Earth Day, Earth Day Network works with over 22,000 partners in 192 countries to broaden, diversify, and mobilize the environmental movement. Earth Day Network is a recognized leader in creating civically–oriented innovative programs with partners outside of the environmental movement to tackle new challenges. Our core programs today focus on greening schools and promoting environmental education with our Educators’ Network, accelerating the global green economy, and A Billion Acts of Green®.

“Know Green, Go Green” aims to educate students about environmental issues so they understand the importance of civic responsibility and are inspired to act of behalf of the planet. Earth Day Network has created this toolkit as a guide to help  you educators engage and mobilize students across the nation by providing lesson plans and other exciting resources and ideas. In addition to utilizing our resources we are asking teachers and administrators around the country to tell us what they are doing for Earth Day 2012 to help us gauge the environmental awareness of our youth.

With the support of administrators, teachers, students, and parents we can mobilize thousands of K-12 schools this Earth Day and educate our youth about the importance of environmental stewardship.
