The Eco-School Network equips parents and students to lead their elementary schools in Oregon toward sustainability.
The Eco-School Network inspires hope and change among students and their school communities in Northwest Oregon. We prepare and support parents and teachers who lead a school sustainability project they care about. For example, students sort their lunch waste into recyclables and compostables, they walk and bike to school in groups, and they eat veggies they grow at school. These projects create opportunities for children to learn and practice sustainability on a daily basis at school while shaping healthy school environments. In addition to shrinking schools’ environmental footprints, these initiatives enhance learning, improve student health and fitness, build leadership capacity, and create positive ripple effects for families and communities.
