NAAEE is pleased to announce that the search for the 2018 EE 30 Under 30 is now open (May 1 - June 11, 2018)! In partnership with the Global Environmental Education Partnership (GEEP), and U.S. Forest Service, the EE 30 Under 30 program is searching for individuals from around the world, 30 years of age or younger, who are leaders in their communities creating change through environmental education.
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!).
New supporting resources are available for the accreditation application process! Not only will you be reminded of the benefits of accreditation and have access to the necessary forms, but there are now examples of the tables and appendices for the application process.
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.
If we want students to get outside and connect with their place, we need teachers who are ready and willing to take learning outside. What types of experiences do teacher candidates get while in their university programs? How can these experiences be more meaningful? Methods professors from across the Wisconsin gathered in June to address these questions and more regarding teacher preparation.
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!
