We see a future where 1 million young people participate in environmental policy making every year.
At Earth Force our mission is to engage young people as active citizens who improve the environment and their communities now and in the future.
We do that because citizen engagement is essential to good environmental solutions.
But the effort has to start in middle school. Research shows that when 10-14 year olds participate in local problem-solving, they bring fresh perspectives to the problems and build a civic toolset to solve problems into adulthood.
“We want every young person to experience using the science from their classroom to create civic change in their community. We are working with partners across the country to incorporate civics into environmental education programs reaching thousands of young people.“
