Girls Learning Environment and Energy (GLEE) National Dissemination Project
Funding Year: 2016
Research Areas: Climate
Regions: North America
The Girls Learning Environment and Energy program (GLEE) studied 30 Girl Scout troops over five years as they utilized specific online learning programs regarding home energy, and food and transportation designed to educate and inform them about their energy usage in daily life. Girls and their parents receiving these programs significantly changed their energy consuming behaviors. This project seeks to translate the results by deploying a business model that will lead to revenue streams and a long-term infrastructure capable of translating the approach into a sustained program of practice in all Girl Scout troops and many other youth-focused organizations nationwide.
