Happy Earth Day!

Faye Snodgress is executive director of Kappa Delta Pi.

faye snodgress 2The celebration of Earth Day is another reminder of our interdependence as human beings with our environment and all living things. With the increasing global focus on current and future challenges resulting from climate change and the growing evidence of its impact on all of us, now is the time for a united effort to ensure a better world for all forever.

Education is at the heart of Earth Day. As a teacher, you are a change agent who can help students understand the many aspects of sustainability—not just environmental—and the many possible roles in creating a more equitable and better society for today and tomorrow.

We hope you are able to  incorporate one  Earth Day/sustainable discussion, activity, or project in your classroom today and every day.  Through this one action, YOU will be making a difference!
