The intention of this thesis was to define environmental global citizenship and translate the definition into a curriculum that effectively teaches students what it means to be an environmental global citizen. The intention of this research is to evaluate the positive effects of outdoor education and place-based education in a traditional school and curriculum. Divided into two parts, half of this thesis is dedicated to defining terms like “outdoor education” and “environmental citizenship,” while the other part focused on developing a curriculum. The curriculum is designed as an elective class, each day is planned with the intention of allowing students to explore what is means to be a part of a community, as well as defining what “community” means to them. Students will learn about communities through the science of plants, natural environments, and global environmental issues.
