Join us! We're leveraging technology and the power of community, providing students in need access to accredited, standards-based curriculum and world class instruction with an emphasis on producing university graduates who will become champions in the fight for global sustainability!
There comes a time when we are spiritually ready to act...
Sustainable cities begin with education. Access is the key. The argument here is that educational opportunity can lead to radical change in the life of a child, a family, a community, a city and our world. Childhood should have choices. Childhood should be celebrated.
In this age of technology, we now have the ability remove many of the rules that govern which children can and cannot be educated. It is time to make new rules. We invite you to join us as we nurture the scientists, engineers, doctors, journalists, teachers and leaders of tomorrow - most of whom only need a chance. The choice is ours. It is time to act.
What does "Green" mean to us? In education it means many things. It means accessibility and social mobility. It means equality of opportunity. It means we have the chance to change lives.
Our vision is simple. Sustainability is about people. Sustainability is about imagination. Sustainability is about love. Sustainability is about action. Education involves all of these. Urban sustainability begins with education.
At the center of everything we do at The Urban Green Education Project is the belief education is a human right and school is a sacred place where love, rigor and guidance combine to allow the child to blossom into the person they are meant to be.
The guiding theme of our project rests on the concepts of sustainability, what the United Nations and defines as “the process of improving the quality of human life while living within the carrying capacity of supporting eco-systems.”
With this as our “North Star” we strive to create programs and learning spaces where students can grow and gain a thirst for knowledge, an innate commitment to honesty, a genuine respect for the rights, well being and dignity of others, and an intense interest to explore the wonders of our world.
We combine all of this with a common love for our families, our city, and our world.
