Generation Earth: An Environmental Education Program from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works

How We Started

In 1996, The Los Angeles County Department of Public Works decided to address environmental issues through an environmental education program. In 1997, Generation Earth was created for Los Angeles County's middle and high school students to educate them on how to reduce the amount of waste going to landfills and pollutants going into our waterways. The program does this by assisting teachers, schools and communities in implementing campus and community projects that produce positive measurable impacts for our environment.
