Earth Force is the home of Environmental Action Civics
We train educators and environmental education organizations to infuse civic experiences into environmental education. In Earth Force classrooms, students lead their learning, address real problems, and develop civic efficacy. And educators are right there beside them, honing their own skills in project management and inquiry-based learning.
On this website, you’ll find activities, activity templates, links to videos, and recommended readings to help educators implement Environmental Action Civics.

Independently Evaluated for Over 18 Years
Brandeis University’s Center for Youth & Communities has independently evaluated our work for 18 years.

More than 70% also noted an increased sense of self-confidence as an educator.
- Earth Force students leave the program deeply committed to being involved in environmental problem-solving: 91% of students met with school or community leaders to ask them to take action, 84% of students show an increase in understanding of environmental issues, and 77% are more likely to contact a public official to advocate for action on an environmental issue in the future.
- Earth Force students leave the program committed to engaging in the civic life of their communities: 81.3% of educators stated that students’ ability to plan and carry out projects aimed at changing local policies improved, and 90.6% of educators stated that participating increased their students’ belief that they can make a difference in the community.
