Exciting changes are coming to the Eco-Schools USA program beginning in the 2023-2024 school year. Modeled on a successful system implemented by our northern neighbors, EcoSchools Canada, the reenvisioned program will see a streamlined website experience, action plans created by student-led teams and made up of user-friendly action cards, centering equitable nature-based solutions. Data collected will be easily available and will reflect the school’s collective impact over time. There will be several important areas of change users will see with the redesigned program, starting with a name change to Eco Schools U.S. and a logo refresh!
