About This Charity
Inside Education helps teachers and students understand the science, technology and issues related to our environment and natural resources. We create and deliver curriculum-relevant energy, environmental and natural resources education programs in topics related to forests, energy and water. These programs consider multiple perspectives, promote critical thinking, and encourage responsible stewardship.
We envision a future generation of knowledgeable and critical thinkers, who understand important connections and relationships between the environment, economy and society, and take responsible action as informed citizens and stewards of our natural resources.
