Children, Nature & Sustainability

CERG conducts fundamental research on children’s environmental learning and also assists in the design of innovative programs of environmental education with community-based organizations, public schools, children’s museums, children’s gardening programs and children’s zoos.

Examples of our past work include collaboration in the design of a dramatic public radio series on environmental education for public schools, participation in the design and evaluation of a joint gardening program with the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and the Brooklyn Children’s Museum, and the writing of Children’s Participation: The Theory and practice of Involving Children in Community Development and Environmental Care. CERG also created a series of teaching units on “Children as Community Researchers” for UNICEF.

Currently we are collaborating with The Public Science Project in the development of participatory approach to food justice in a community youth program.
