Let's hear from our children on their social, environmental, cultural, and economic concerns around sustainability and always acting responsibly with the next seven generations in mind. This poster from the Earth & Spirit Council's Earth Day 2012 Ceremony in Portland, Oregon is a collaborative effort of students and friends. It conveys hope, love, and concern as we know we will find in the children's voices of sustainability.

When One Teaches, Many Lean by Riland King
Inspired by the idea that "when one teaches, many learn," Ryland King, a 2012 Brower Youth Award Winner, founded Environmental Education for the Next Generation, a program that recruits college students to teach elementary school kids about our environment. King wanted to "promote sustainable action throughout communities, from the youngest members of society up" and so he designed an eight-week curriculum for college students to teach first and second graders. The curriculum, which is aligned with the California State Board of Education's content standards, includes topics like "The Importance of Bees," "Composting," and "Water Conservation." In less than three years, 400 college student volunteers have taught more than 3,000 elementary school students in 200 classrooms across California. King hopes that by 2015 college students will be teaching at least 14,000 elementary school students a year.
