No Child Left Inside. Our nation’s future relies on a well-educated public to be wise stewards of the very environment that sustains us, our families and communities, and future generations.
It is environmental education which can best help us as individuals make the complex, conceptual connections between economic prosperity, benefits to society, environmental health, and our own well being.
Ultimately, the collective wisdom of our citizens, gained through education, will be the most compelling and most successful strategy for environmental management.
This video by the No Child Left Inside Coalition clearly demonstrates the value of hands-on environmental education, in particular, education about how we interact with the streams, watersheds and habitats around us.
