Mission Statement

San Diego Environmental Foundation ("SDEF") was created in 1997 to educate the public on ways to reduce the environmental degradation that comes with unsustainable transportation choices.


In 2000, the SDEF partnered with the first comprehensive Regional Transportation Center in the US, which provided alternative fuels to San Diego County. Since the public was largely unaware of the advantages of alternative fuels, SDEF's EcoCenter for Alternative Fuel Education was launched. In 2003 the EcoCenter began touring middle-school students and other citizens' groups, demonstrating the benefits of clean, renewable fuels for the individual and the community at large.

Description

Throughout Southern California, the San Diego EcoCenter for Alternative Fuel Education is regarded as *the* field-trip destination for kids in 5th, 6th and 7th grades. When children attend the regular EcoCenter tour, from the moment they step on the low-emissions school bus until they master the spelling of 'hydrolyze,' they are launched into what we must agree is the only *viable* future: one powered by clean, cheap and abundant energy. And through the tour, they don't just "see" that future - they thump, probe, deduce, peer, calculate and evaluate the path to a renewable America - getting their hands (as it were) clean.
