An idea would be to use science classes biology classes and mandatory volunteer work that is required in some high school systems to teach kids teenagers about planting trees and caring for them.

And sometime in the future they might come back in the town or city they went to school and check the tree they planted or the park they designed.

A green belt around cities would be a good place to start. This is just in case the School backyard already has a nice park and there is no space to plant and beautify the space.

Planting 100 trees or azalea bushes or roses and caring for them, during 4 years of high school for every student that attend a high school would make an impact on the environment and also to the decisions this kids would make as adults regarding the environment.
