National Green Week



What is National Green Week?

National Green Week is an annual event that empowers schools to engage in sustainability focused lessons, projects or activities between the first full week in February and the end of Earth Month (April). Participating districts, schools, classrooms or youth groups choose a week, then select from GEF's sustainability focused programs to be their ‘green theme.’ Each theme provides 5 day standards-based lesson sets, activities, recommended reading, sustainability tips, contests, and more! Join over 10,000 schools and 5 million students in the largest sustainability education program running!

Sustainability Programs! 




GEF's sustainability programs are all free and are designed to make it easy for you to incorporate sustainability education in your classroom! Each themed based program includes standards-based lessons, activities, recommended reading, contests and more! Utilize all or some of a GEF sustainability program any time or schedule your sustainability initiatives around National Green Week.

National Green Week challenges schools, classrooms and youth groups to spotlight sustainability for at least one week! GEF has made it simple, pick a sustainability theme and become a leader of your own sustainability initiative! Choose any week between the first full week in February until the end of Earth month (April) to be your 'Green Week!" Big or small, everyone is encouraged to do something in support of sustainability during Green Week! Click to learn more about National Green Week!
