Since 1993, DHEC has provided environmental education programs centered on its award-winning “Action for a cleaner tomorrow” environmental curriculum.
Called “Action” for short, the curriculum is revised every year and is correlated to the state’s science standards. More than 11,000 teachers have been trained to use “Action” since the 2009-2010 school year. It’s a great way to set kids on the road to learning about waste reduction, recycling, composting and other environmentally friendly activities.
Three-hour “Action” training workshops are available at no cost to teachers across the state through DHEC’s Office of Solid Waste Reduction and Recycling.
