The decision of using schools as a medium in reaching out to children and youth will help to make every school sustainable, and engendering behavior change in young people and those connected to them so that good habits learned in schools are followed through into homes and communities.

The focus on children and youth is particularly important because it’s an opportunity to intervene at a key developmental stage of life and because children can be an important influence on the environmental behavior of their parents.

EGSCN believes that no matter what age, individuals can make a difference in their world. EGSCN is driven to inspire, educate and empower youth to make daily decisions to support a healthy, sustainable planet.
