Have You Watched Our Videos Yet?

After a number of educators shared their videos of innovative learning strategies with us, we posted our first set for anyone to freely view.

You will find within them practical ideas such as using GoogleEarth for an invasive plant survey, or of schools that take students on weekly field trips to enhance their personal development and sustainability more generally. Learn how to prepare waste free lunches and to build comfy bug houses.

Click here to enjoy these videos and don’t forget to tell your friends about them.

Reminder: Send Us Your Videos!

If  you have developed a short video about an innovative green learning strategy, let us promote it to the world. We would post it on our website and promote it via social media.  Five minutes is an ideal length. Click here to find more information about technical suggestions, how to get started and for more details about what we are looking for. Have questions?   Contact us at
