What is National Green Week?

National Green Week is an annual event sponsored by the Green Education Foundation that empowers schools to engage in sustainability focused lessons, projects or activities between February 4 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!

This year, National Green Week kicks off February 4-8 but you can choose any week from Feb. 4 through April 30 to participate.

Participate for the whole week, a day, or just one lesson or activity. Schools and groups are encouraged to take this opportunity to spend time with students discussing sustainability topics and exploring ways they can make a difference.
