Earth School has been Launched!

Earth School is a free, high quality educational content aimed to help teachers, parents and students who are currently at home due to the COVID-19 crisis. Earth School is a 30 day journey through the natural world.

Earth School was launched on Earth Day on April 22 and will conclude on World Environment Day on June 5. There are daily adventures, or Quests, each organized around the theme: “The Nature of…” While the initiative is hosted online, the Quests are very much designed to encourage young people to connect with nature and their environment.

It was initiated by UNEP and TED-Ed in collaboration with many incredible partners and is supported globally by 50 collaborating institutions including – including National Geographic, BBC Ideas, WWF, Conservation International, the Nature Conservancy and IUCN.  

Bill Nye (“the Science Guy”) and Greta Thunberg are also planning to engage in the social media outreach effort.
