Helping to Foster Environmental Literacy for All California Students

We rely on the environment for everything we need – the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, and much, much more.  As the context in which we live our lives, the environment provides students an intrinsically engaging and authentic context for learning.

The California Education and the Environment Initiative is a statewide effort to make environmental literacy an integral part of K-12 instruction in California.  We provide educators with professional learning and instructional materials that demonstrate how to blend the environment into the teaching of traditional academic subjects like science, history, and English language arts.
