Partners in Education


School Partnership

The Broward County Environmental Protection and Growth Management Department (EPGMD) believes that educating school age children about the environment and their role in preserving and protecting the natural resources for the future instills environmental stewardship at an early age. In an effort to support environmental education in Broward County, the EPGMD has entered into a partnership agreement with Broward County Public Schools (BCPS), the sixth largest school district in the nation.

As part of the partnership, the P3 Eco-Challenge is held each school year to recognize the implementation of sustainability efforts within the schools and their communities. Outstanding BCPS environmental stewards were celebrated at the third P3 (Preserving Our Planet for Posterity) Eco-Challenge Awards Ceremony held on April 29, 2015 at the Long Key Nature Center in Davie. Platinum sponsors Whole Foods Market, Wheelabrator and Gold sponsors South Florida Audubon Society, National Wildlife Federation, Hazen and Sawyer, Everglades Holiday Park, JM Family Enterprises, along with a number of Silver and Eco-Friend sponsors contributed to this inspiring event.
