ATLANTA – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will sponsor training on the Student Curriculum: Recipes for Healthy Kids and a Healthy Environment. This one day training will be held for two days at the Sam Nunn Atlanta Federal Center in Atlanta, GA on Wednesday June 25, 2014, and Thursday, June 26, 2014.

The goal of the training is to increase participant’s knowledge of environmental concerns as they relate to children and to provide a working overview of the program. All participants will be expected to develop a Plan of Work to implement the curriculum into their current educational program.

The Student Curriculum: Recipes for Healthy Kids and a Healthy Environment is a nine-lesson program designed to excite kids, ages 9 – 13, about environmental health and empower them to take steps in their everyday lives to improve the environment for their community and reduce their environmental risk. The complete curriculum can be found at www.epa.gov/children.
