Our Mission

    The mission of the Cambridge Environmental Literacy Project (CELP) is to serve as a hub for outdoor learning initiatives in Cambridge, connecting and collaborating with schools, civic groups, environmental educators, businesses and nonprofits to involve children more intimately with our urban green spaces. We hope to achieve this through:



    Working in partnership with educators to promote environmental concepts and place-based education throughout the school district in preschool, afterschool, and K-12th grade classes


    Lobbying for the inclusion of students in environmental efforts throughout the city, empowering them to lead critical conversations about and projects promoting sustainability and conservation; prioritizing questions of access and social/environmental justice so Cambridge's wild spaces are open to all children
