Shaping Our School, Shaping Our Future - Environmental Education in Ontario Schools
Ontario Ministry of Education 2007: The working Group on Environmental Education
Over the past decade, changes in the Earth's environment and its natural systems have emerged as a matter of increasingly urgent concern around the world. While the issues are complex and diverse, there is a shared and universal recognition that solutions will arise only through committed action on a global, national, regional, local, and individual scale. Schools have a vital role to play in preparing our young people to take their place as informed, engaged, and empowered citizens who will be pivotal in shaping the future of our communities, our province, our country, and our global environment.

Ready, Set, Green! was prepared by the Ontario Ministry of Education to support effective environmental education and environmentally sound practices in Ontario schools. Based on current programs and practices in schools and boards across the province, Ready, Set, Green! is intended to stimulate discussion of this increasingly important issue, and provide practical tools and strategies that can be put to use in boards, schools, and communities.
