Changing the Climate of Environmental Education - One Classroom at a Time!

Our Curriculum Plan

In examining how environmental topics are currently covered within science curricula, HEAL leaders discovered a narrow focus on conservation and the effects of human activities on the environment, missing an opportunity to educate our youth on how the environment directly relates to their own health and well-being. 

HEAL aims to revolutionize environmental education by creatively emphasizing how the environment directly impacts students’ own health, shifting the focus from being external and distant to very personal and immediate.

We have launched an initiative to visit as many grades 3-5 classrooms and share the effects of polluted air, water, food, and soil on human health.

HEAL is always looking for schools that we can present to students. If you know a school or classroom that would like to have the HEAL team visit and educate their students, please contact us at https://www.heal4all.org/contact-us. Check out the schools we visited so far!
