IMPROVE YOUR ENVIRONMENT
Improve campus and community environments through facilitating an environmental service learning project!
From waste-drives to planting or caring for a garden, youth-led projects empower students by providing an authentic
learning experience that makes our world a healthier place to live and learn.
To be a part of Generation Earth, all projects should follow these steps!

PICKING A PROJECT
Projects can range in scope and size and might be anything from spending a day creating educational posters to teach
people about the benefits of native plant gardens to spending several weeks planning and setting up a recycling program
at your school. If you already know which topic you want to explore, head over to Project Resources.
We recommend starting with the Water Pollution Prevention or Waste Reduction and Recycling Project Toolkit to explore your
campus and choose a specific project. If you are not sure what type of project you want to work on, talk to your
Generation Earth project Manager, or consider starting with a project to enter into the
Streets to the Sea School Competition, or map your campus community and/or surveying students and teachers to identify
existing issues. Check out the Teacher Action Guide for mapping and survey ideas!
