With generous support from the Pisces Foundation, this work is centered on increasing the capacity of the field of EE to produce and use quality evaluation. The vision of this project is simple: improve environmental education through evaluation. This unique collaboration is engaging new voices, including program partners and evaluation experts, to measure and highlight environmental education's impact beyond any individual program. The work centers diversity, equity, inclusion, and practitioner engagement to ensure the results reach all sectors and stakeholders.
