Susan Silber, Nature’s Voices Project (2015 Impact Grant)
The Nature’s Voices Project is an initiative created by longtime environmental educator Susan Silber to honor and amplify the voices of young people inspired by environmental education. They use the power of student stories to build greater support for environmental literacy programs, and a sustainable, resilient and equitable world. The project raises awareness among educators, funders, and policy-makers about the multitude of benefits that Green Schools and environmental education programs produce – health, academic achievement, social justice, hands-on science, green jobs training, and real-world relevance – by publishing stories and creative projects from and about students whose lives have been transformed by these programs through an online platforms, social media, conventional media and various speaking opportunities.
