EcoRise is a nonprofit organization working at the intersection of K–12 sustainability education, climate resilience, and environmental justice. EcoRise offers a range of curricula and programs for students, teachers, school districts, and partners that are designed to advance environmental literacy, promote sustainable schools, and provide equitable access to green career pathways.
Gen:Thrive, a program of EcoRise, is a collaborative initiative that provides shared data and technology tools to accelerate sustainability and advance health, equity and climate resilience in K–12 schools.
Welcome to Gen:Thrive! Our goal is to better understand the state of environmental education programs in Texas and to build and share technology tools that help organizations expand their impact and reach with more students and schools.
Over the last three years, nearly 300 organizations have contributed their program information to Gen:Thrive. Now with our newly launched platform, we are updating our statewide directory of sustainability education and green school resources, as well as our Climate, Equity and Environmental Education map. These resources will be open to the public and shared with community leaders and local school districts to inform and advance K-12 environmental education, green schools and climate justice. To learn more about Gen:Thrive, please visit our website.
Who should be involved? Any service providers that offer programs or resources for youth and K-12 schools focused on environmental education, climate resilience, environmental justice, green schools, outdoor learning, food and nutrition, health and wellness, conservation, green jobs, and related topics. Such programs could be classroom-based or off-campus, formal and informal, and can include broader beneficiaries, such as district administrators, Pre-K children and families.
