EYF was created to address the growing need for a dynamic, absorbing, challenging and entertaining approach to teaching environmental awareness and activism to a diverse youth population. EYF informs, motivates and compels students to react and respond, providing answers to the questions: “What are the current environmental challenges? What are some solutions? What can I do?”
Highlighting innovations and solutions, EYF features:
- Over 20 films for grades 1-12 that address multiple environmental issues.
- Post-screening conversations, live presentations and panel discussions
- An Active Cinema room where representatives from local, regional and national environmental groups set up exhibits and engage directly with students one on one as they provide information about the work of their organizations and how they initiate change.
