Action for Earth 2024

The New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) is thrilled to thank everyone who participated in our month-long Action for Earth celebration!

Throughout April, schools across the state expanded their climate change education efforts. They embraced the opportunity to be stewards of our environment by planning and sharing various engaging activities focused on the four themed weeks: Energy, Food, Waste, and Nature and Wellness.

We were blown away by the creativity, passion, and commitment to environmental action that students, educators, and administrators demonstrated. From planting pollinator gardens to hands-on learning across disciplines, your dedication to protecting our planet truly shone through. 

Social Media Buzz

Social media was abuzz with the excitement of Action for Earth! We loved seeing photos and videos of your events shared using the hashtags #ClimateEd, #ClimateChangeEducation, and #ActionforEarthNJ.

Looking Ahead

The NJDOE is committed to supporting climate change education efforts throughout the year. We encourage you to continue fostering a love for our planet and empowering future generations to be environmental leaders.
