After discussions at the Alliance for New Jersey Environmental Education Annual Conference held virtually online over two weeks in the winter of 2021, the New Jersey Safe Schools Program at Rutgers School of Public Health partnered with colleagues through the NJ Commission on Environmental Education to develop this new, free, and topical course to benefit secondary school students and their teachers in career and technical education. Topics include sustainability, climate change, environmental justice, and connections to environmental public and community health.
