The Children’s Environmental Literacy Foundation (CELF) was founded in 2003 on the principle that education for sustainability (EfS) is essential for today’s K-12 students. EfS is a teaching methodology that develops critical thinking skills necessary to understand and take action on complex, interconnected issues. Students today face unprecedented challenges and an imperative to balance economic, social, and environmental problems. They need to feel inspired and be prepared to innovate new solutions.  CELF programs use real-world problem solving to prepare students with the holistic thinking skills and motivation to become agents of change for a healthier, more stable, and sustainable future.
