US Eco-Action Program

Project Based Learning—

GSE combines classroom environmental literacy curriculum with team-based, student-led outdoor learning opportunities that provide immediate opportunities to transform knowledge into skills. Inquiry-based workshops provide opportunities for solution-oriented critical thinking and collaboration. By working together, students experience profound shifts in perspective, deeper conceptual understanding, and increased intellectual curiosity. Students:
-Build, maintain, and harvest 18 organic gardens that provide 8,000 lbs for underserved communities (including their own where applicable), and bring these skills back to their families
-Raise trees from seed and plant 25,000 native tree species to combat deforestation and mitigate climate change annually
-Promote recycling and composting in schools and communities through educating peers and neighbors
-Build ecological literacy, systems thinking, and environmental problem-solving skills through in- and out-of-class discussions, readings, and hands-on experiments

Global Ambassadorship—

GSE students participate in reciprocal international exchanges where they partner with their international peers on ongoing GSE eco-action projects in communities in Nicaragua and Ecuador. This year 650 traveling students will dramatically deepen their understanding of the region they visit and their role in the global community, returning to their home communities confident and able to tackle the environmental challenges in their local context. Students:
-Gain leadership skills in advocacy, project management, and cross-cultural communication
-Gain technical skills in bio-intensive agriculture methods, technical reforestation, native flora identification
-See themselves as leaders with the responsibility, and ability, to change the world they will inherit
-Develop lasting relationships with other young people at home and abroad
-Demonstrate dedication to local ecological work upon return from abroad experience
-Experience transformation leading to positive changes in attitudes, goals, and behavior (sustainable practices such as composting and recycling, decreased reliance on social media and online gaming, and increased mindfulness and engagement with community)
