THE ALL THINGS GREEN INITIATIVE
The process of understanding the impact humankind has on the ecological
system of the Earth in terms of climate change, pollution and resource depletion is very
complex, time consuming and dynamic. However, in recent years, it has become necessary that
each of us understand how environmental issues affect us in our daily lives, how we must
expand our sense of environmental responsibility and how we must learn to coexist on this
fragile planet. Coming to terms with these environmental issues is now an essential part
of human life. It is a lifelong process and a lifestyle, without option. And when does this
process begin? It should begin in the earliest years of life, during the most significant
period of human development. On this account, it is imperative that early childhood education
provide exposure to an environmental curriculum that empowers our youth with the importance
of improving the environment and conserving resources - a curriculum that is hands on and
incorporates relevance to the reality of current environmental issues and the choices
available for future sustainability.

The goal of the Green Generation project is to educate youth through classroom instruction, collaboration and hands-on experience in horticulture, environmental sciences, conservation, nutrition, recycling, alternative energy and problem-solving.
