"We are dedicated to creating a green minded generation by inspiring environmental stewardship and individual action through the teaching lens of the struggling honey bee.
Planet Bee is working towards a future in which children and adults are exposed to global environmental issues, and given the tools to combat them. Today the American child spends an average of 7 hours a day in front of a screen inside, away from nature. Planet Bee's educational programs take students outside, playing a crucial role in connecting children with the earth at the time when they are developing the values which will steer the course of their lives. Outdoor education not only brightens our planet's future, but also improves students’ performance in school.
We envision a world in which all students feel empowered to take action for their planet, regardless of race, gender, class or location. Through our work, students will learn to love our planet and the importance of individual action in global movements, and will become more equipped to tackle environmental problems in the future."
