By introducing students at a young age to the urgency of the current environmental crisis, we can affect their fundamental attitudes towards the environment and help raise a generation of young people that make protecting the environment a priority and a way of life. The Green Kids! program introduces students to the concept of climate change and environmental conservation while providing them with tools to make environmentally conscious choices in their lives. Beyond simply raising awareness, Green DMV seeks to foster an environmental literacy program that will help prepare students for the challenges and opportunities of a clean energy economy.
