We are so excited to announce the launch of a new research library: eeRESEARCH. This database is a partnership between the North American Association of Environmental Education (NAAEE) and the Children & Nature Network (C&NN), with support from the Pisces Foundation. With more than 1,000 peer-reviewed articles, summaries, and syntheses, eeRESEARCH represents one of the largest single collections of peer-reviewed literature focused on environmental education and connecting people to nature in the world (at least we think it’s one of the largest!).
Education Day (16 November) at the 2017 UN climate change conference in Bonn (6 - 17 November 2017) sees the launch of a Virtual Special Issue of the journal, Environmental Education Research, focused on climate change education research.
As a taster of the launch event and a stimulus for engaging with the papers in the Virtual Special Issue, Alan Reid has prepared a series of key questions about climate change education
and research, that can be accessed at the link.

Panelists explored highlights from the plenary panels of the 2017 research symposium, with an emphasis on the dynamism of the field within the context of responding to new horizons and challenges for researchers, research, and the NAAEE Research Symposium itself.
Tuesday, October 17 through Thursday, October 19: Join us for virtual conference week at NAAEE. We’ll share a few highlights of what was planned for Puerto Rico through a series of webinars, live-streamed events, and conference session posts.
Researchers at Duke's Nicholas School of the Environment are helping NAAEE compile and create research summaries and syntheses for an online database to be housed on eePRO, an exciting project conducted jointly with the Children and Nature Network with funding from the Pisces Foundation. We want to hear from you about what would be most useful to you!
