Friends Environmental Education Network (FEEN)

Friends schools have a special obligation to include environmental education in their programs in order to promote a sustainable future for all life. Our students should learn how they can best understand, preserve, and restore the natural processes, resources, and beauty so vital to the earth and to humankind's physical and spiritual health.

FEEN Group for sharing ideas and resources for environmental education in Friends schools.

friendscouncil.NET is an educational networking platform which includes discussion boards, videos, groups, personal comment walls, and friend connections. We've created an open group for each of our peer networks. It is our hope that these online dimensions will strengthen the network of support and collaboration across Friends education. Membership is required.

Toxins in School Environments

Squeaky Clean??

Toxic Schools: Are your cleaning and pest management practices safe for students and the environment?

Westtown convened a workshop on February 2, 2006 on the topic of toxins in the school environment. Schools use products in their cleaning and pest management practices which often contain toxic chemicals. Indoor air quality is a major concern. Increases in asthma, other respiratory illnesses, allergies and longer term risks for cancer and immunodeficiency diseases are common. How can schools provide a clean, healthy, pest-free environment and not put students at risk?
