As we work to leave our children a safe, sustainable future, we must also equip them with the tools they need to take on tomorrow's environmental challenges. Supporting environmental literacy & a strong foundation in science, technology, engineering, & math for every student will help ensure our youth have the skills & knowledge to advance our clean energy economy. Last year, we launched the Dept. of Education Green Ribbon Schools recognition award to encourage more schools to pursue sustainability, foster health & wellness, & integrate environmental literacy into the curriculum. In the days ahead, we look forward to awarding the first Green Ribbons & recognizing the accomplishments of green schools across our country. (from April ‘12 Earth Day B. Obama proclamation)
