Environmental Education Collaborative (EECO)


Our Mission:

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.
