Dream in Green (DIG) launched The Dream in Green® Academy (The Academy) as a platform that promotes collaboration with other community organizations to introduce environmental education programs to K-12 schools in South Florida.

The Academy builds on the success of the Green Schools Challenge (GSC), DIG’s flagship program, by leveraging its established framework for delivering educational programming to elementary, middle and high school students.

Our Programs

The Green Schools Challenge is a whole-system program that engages students in hands-on activities to save energy and water at school and teaches them about the links between natural resources, climate change and community sustainability. Participants receive a guidebook with educational activities focused on the following monthly topics: energy efficiency and conservation, waste reduction and recycling, water quality and conservation, alternative transportation, green living (buildings and careers), and food efficiency. It serves as the entry level program of The Academy in which participants learn the basics of sustainability and build the foundation for a green school.

Green Leadership Grants

Thanks to the Batchelor Foundation, Dream in Green will award $10,000 in the form of grants to Green Teams participating in The Academy.
