Does Environmental Education Work?

It looks good. It feels good. Teachers and students love it. But does it really matter?!? The most recent research on environmental education from Stanford University answers this questions with clarity: yes!
A systematic review of the academic literature showed how environmental education makes an impact on both teachers and students. 90% reported INCREASED skills; 86% reported POSITIVE change; and 83% reported ENHANCED environment-related behaviors.
Stanford’s research mirrors our own SoundWaters data: environmental knowledge is just the start- our approach impacts overall academic achievement, critical thinking, civic engagement and personal growth. Read the report here.
