Celebrating 10 years of Green Street

Green Street was a pan-Canadian environmental education program that operated between 1999 and June 2010. The goal of the program was to encourage active participation of young people in environmental stewardship. Its strategy centred on supporting voluntary sector organizations in offering quality programs to schools that responded to both students’ interests and teachers’ needs. In its effort to strengthen environment education in Canada, Green Street fostered the emergence of a community of learning that involved students, teachers, environmental educators, program managers, researchers and advisors. The goal of this web archive is to ensure that learning from Green Street continues to be shared. It includes stories from Green Street participants, resources produced in the context of the program, and descriptions of key partners and their work.
