Environmental education is becoming more prevalent in school curriculums. The Tbilisi Declaration of 1977 defines environmental education as:
A process aimed at developing a world population that is aware of, and concerned about, the total environment and its associated problems, and which has the knowledge, attitudes, skills, motivation, and commitment to work individually and collectively toward solutions of current problems and the prevention of new ones (Braus and Wood, p.6).
By incorporating more environmental education into elementary and middle school curriculums, the students are becoming more prepared to deal with problems and make educated choices affecting their futures.
