Eco-Audit Grant Applications now open

EcoRise believes that high-quality, student-driven sustainability education should be accessible and affordable. At just $500 per teacher, EcoRise teachers in the Sustainable Intelligence Program have access to:

Comprehensive K-12 Sustainability and Design Curriculum

EcoRise teachers receive access to over 200 hands-on lessons, including our bilingual, STEM-based Sustainable Intelligence Curriculum (SI) that introduces students to challenges and opportunities surrounding seven distinct eco-themes and engages youth in developing real-world solutions in their communities through project-based activities, design labs, and campus Eco-Audits. EcoRise teachers also receive access to our Design Studio Curriculum which guides students through a creative problem-solving process as they invent innovative solutions to a specific sustainability challenge.

Teacher Training & Support

EcoRise provides year-round face-to-face and virtual training for teachers, which introduces the curriculum, the Eco-Audit Grant process, and instructional best practices rooted in design thinking and problem-based learning. Additionally, teachers receive access to an online platform that provides self-paced training resources as needed, including short videos, teacher and student rubrics, implementation calendars, a project library, the Eco-Audit Grant application and project exemplars, and a global teacher support network.
