Your help is needed to imagine the future of Environmental Education! As NAAEE continues to refine strategic plans and move our collective agenda forward, it is helpful to have input from our membership. NAAEE and researchers at the University of Florida (UF) are inviting you to complete a survey that will report how environmental education professionals and researchers envision the future of EE.
NAAEE's Executive Director Judy Braus shares her latest message to members about the importance of self-care and collaboration and exciting upcoming events and opportunities, including two virtual conferences, a webinar with the First Lady of New Jersey about the integration of climate change education throughout the NJ state curriculum, and much more.
At NAAEE, we are committed to redoubling our efforts to work with our members, partners, and others to create a more just and sustainable future. Read NAAEE Executive Director Judy Braus's latest letter to members.
