The Global Rivers Environmental Education Network
The Global Rivers Environmental Education Network (GREEN) creates opportunities for young people to learn more about the watersheds they live in and to use what they learn to create lasting solutions for pressing water quality issues. The program engages young people to be knowledgeable about watersheds and their problems, to have the skills to solve those problems, and to be motivated to work toward a solution. Through GREEN, Earth Force, local environmental organizations, and mentors at General Motors share a commitment to increasing civic engagement, improving the quality of education, and protecting the environment.
Evaluations show 85% of educators believe GREEN increases their students’ understanding of watershed issues and 77% believe GREEN increases their students’ interest in science. Young people not only learn about science, they connect directly with possible STEM careers through interactions with GM and dealership employees and local partners.
