ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION FUNDING

WHEREAS, Environmental Education Funding greatly assists cities expand the scope of services to the community by addressing environmental issues; and

WHEREAS, many cities, such as the City of Laredo, using these funds, have initiated an extensive environmental education campaign, aimed at the youth in our community, with an emphasis on water quality protection; and

WHEREAS, the goals of the program are to bring awareness of non-point source pollution and its effects on water quality to provide pre-school educators with free environmental education materials and available web-sites with easily downloadable material, and to form a bridge of communication and cooperation between environmental professionals and pre-school educators.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the U.S. Conference of Mayors finds that there is a critical need for educating the next generation in environmental awareness and that full and dedicated funding sources for such environmental education outreach be created.
