Environmental Education Collaborative (EECO)


Our Mission:

EECO is Yale’s first volunteer student organization dedicated to inspiring a generation of environmentally-conscious K-12 students in New Haven. Through a place-based curriculum, EECO builds strong relationships with local students, schools, coalitions, and community organizations. Volunteers teach weekly lessons, lead field trips in New Haven, and collaborate with community leaders to develop sustained environmental education projects that reinforce student learning beyond the classroom.

Our Activities:

Teaching Environmental Science and Environmental Humanities to local public school students
Direct Service
EECO teachers teach middle school students several times per week, forging meaningful relationships with students through spiral curricula and place-based pedagogies. Lessons are interactive and engage students in a variety of hands-on interdisciplinary learning exercises.

Student Leaders:

Sarah Shapiro - Co-Coordinator/Co-President Norbu Dorji - Co-Coordinator/Co-President
