Established in April of 2019, the Environmental Education Collaborative (EECO), is Yale’s first student organization dedicated to inspiring a generation of environmentally-conscious individuals by teaching K-12 students in New Haven. EECO builds strong relationships with local schools and community organizations by developing and teaching place-based curriculum, as well as by leading (temporarily virtual) field trips in New Haven and implementing sustained environmental education projects to reinforce students’ learning in the classroom.
EECO teaches sustainability and environmental consciousness to New Haven middle schoolers with self-designed lesson plans and activities.

We volunteer at Bishop Woods Elementary School twice a week and teach interactive lessons about environmental justice with a place-based pedagogy.
