Many, many environmental websites, such as we have listed
throughout Eco-Pros and on our Great Links page, have sections
specifically for young people where you can find ideas for
environmental areas where young people can assist. Look into
these sites for Kids sections and pages focusing on "Where You
Can Help," " What Can I Do?," etc. We caution against children
submitting any personal data online, such as some sites request
before voting on issues. Other sources for environmental issues
suitable for youth involvement can be found through
environmental organizations operating in your area, such as the
Sierra Club and Audubon Society, nature conservancies, etc. The
online environmental news networks can be great sources of
information where young people can develop an interest in a
particular subject and want to seek further information about
it. These articles can spark an awareness of a situation or
environmental issue which may exist locally in their community that they would want to become involved with.
Eco-Pros is developing a
Good News page where we will publish news
stories about helping the environment. We
want to hear from you. Click
