GSE Eco-action Programs
GSE offers a holistic program including cultural exchange and project-based learning rooted in solving urgent ecological problems while building sustainable local and international communities. From our local roots in Northern California, to our global branches in Nicaragua and Ecuador, GSE works with high school, university, and middle school-aged students, as well as with the educators, administrators and communities supporting their schools. We believe schools can be central hubs of community engagement—by supporting student growth and leadership, families, business leaders, nonprofits, and other community members invest in the health and sustainability of the community for years to come.

*NOTE: Global Student Embassy is an independent organization and international trips are not school-sponsored or school-supported activities.
Global Student Embassy Program Coordinators spend 1 full day a week at each partnership school, providing teachers with in-class curricular support. Organic school gardens and nature preserves serve as outdoor classrooms to develop students’ environmental literacy and project management skills. GSE and partner teachers equip students to become empowered advocates for stewardship, sustainability, and community. By learning through doing together, students develop leadership skills, experience profound shifts in perspective, deepen conceptual understanding, and increase their intellectual curiosity.
