Greening the heart or the essence of education means examining what we teach, how we teach, and where we teach to ensure that we’re helping our students become protectors of the Earth and all the living beings on it. We can see that the situation is dire. It is desperate and dangerous already for hundreds of thousands of people around the world. Many species have become extinct. So, we have some urgent changes to make. Educators around the world can no longer teach as though catastrophic events are not happening.

What advice do you have for parents to help their children become better Earth stewards? The most important thing to be teaching preschoolers to eight-year old’s is nature connecting. There are plenty of ways; parents can give their children the responsibility to help in the garden, to care for small creatures; always treading carefully when out for a walk to protect the ants and other insects; eating a compassionate planet-friendly vegan diet…. Teaching, guiding and leading our children to appreciate the beauty and strength, and the diversity of nature will green their young hearts and spirits.
