ECOschool is the Center for Climate Protection’s youth leadership program. It inspires young people to take action for immediate greenhouse gas emissions reductions while promoting long-term personal and community environmental action.
The most accessible and impactful action young people can take is changing their transportation habits. ECOschool encourages students to take greenways to school and/or use alternative low carbon commute options. We use a service-learning model working with student leaders in high schools across the county to bring real life learning applications to schools that support healthy living, safe low carbon commutes, traffic decongestion, and improved air quality for the entire community.
