Youth In Green
Exploring Environmental Youth Education Options in Pittsburgh
The Youth In Green report is designed to answer the question, “How does Pittsburgh expand environmental awareness and skills available to youth and youth related services throughout the City of Pittsburgh?“. Using our expertise in vacant land reclamation and previous youth education experiences, GTECH produced a set of recommendations that marries youth programming with vacant lot greening strategies.
The report includes the following:
- an analysis of existing environmentally-themed youth programming.
- recommendations and projected costs for city-wide youth programming.
- case studies on successful Pittsburgh-based programs.
- maps of the following classified by age group: total number of out-of-school youth programs and environmental youth programs, environmental youth programming by location and duration, concentration of vacant land and existing programming.
