Green Education Foundation (GEF) has launched a new website to showcase its sustainability education programs, curricular resources and tools, and professional development opportunities. GEF, a non-profit organization committed to creating a sustainable future through education, was established in 2008. With the release of its new and improved website, the organization reaffirms its resounding leadership in sustainability education in the global marketplace.

Victoria Waters, CEO of GEF, shared her enthusiasm about the new website and what it means for the organization’s future: “With the enhanced capabilities of GEF’s new website we are more excited than ever to share our high quality sustainability education with the world using a first-class platform. We are confident that this site will provide an even more engaging user experience as well as match the exceptional design and delivery quality of our new online courses.”

In April, GEF Institute, a division of GEF, will launch two new online sustainability courses for educators, students, and adults. These courses are part of its Sustainability Concepts Certification, a new offering that meets the market demand for certification opportunities in sustainability. Building on the overwhelming success of its 2011 pilot course, Sustainability Education Concepts and Teaching Methods, the courses will feature similar delivery methods and content quality. One of the most innovative features of these courses are the video narrations interspersed throughout the text, creating a unique and engaging learning experience. Other features include pre and post unit assessments, lively discussion forums, and application based activities. The Institute is offering early bird enrollment through March 20. Visit GEF Institute's website to learn more or enroll.

GEF is best known for free sustainability programs for grades K-12 that teach the important principles of sustainability while incorporating hands on activities, contests, and STEM based lessons. National Green Week, the organization’s flagship program, kicked off its fourth year on February 6. National Green Week is the nation’s largest waste reduction campaign for schools and calls on students, faculty, and staff to implement strategies to reduce waste for at least one week. By measuring waste generated before and after green week, students are able to see the power of collective action. Schools can choose any week between February 6 and Earth Day, April 22 to be their green week. For more information or to enroll for free, visit GEF's website.

Schools and educators are encouraged to join GEF’s academic year long Green Energy Challenge program. Sponsored by National Grid, the Green Energy Challenge calls on schools across the nation to improve their energy efficiency through simple changes in behavior. This year, National Grid is sponsoring special contests for schools in New England and New York, including the Energy Star T-Shirt design contest. In celebration of Energy Star’s 20th Birthday, students will submit their representation of their energy saving wish for 2012. Two winners will be chosen by GEF and National Grid to receive $250 as well as t-shirts with the winning design for their entire class.
