Learning

Spiritual and faith-based houses of worship are often places of safety, volunteerism, and crisis management during and after high-impact weather events (e.g., hurricanes, tornadoes, wildfires, flash flooding). Hence, spiritual and faith-based communities can be an integral part of building a Weather-Ready Nation. This AMS webinar is part of the Finding Common Ground Among Science, Spirituality, and Environmentalism Series.

Access to nature can reduce anxiety, green schoolyards can impact students’ physical and socioemotional health, and environmental education can improve health-related quality of life. As environmental educators, we’re familiar with nature’s many gifts, including that of wellness and health. In this blog post, we’ll look specifically at how Geechee communities in Georgia supported and prioritized community health.

During Black History Month and beyond, we want to share the inspiration and strength of regional, place-based initiatives that address Black history in nature and relate to this year's theme, Black Health and Wellness.

Our connection to nature forms first through our youthful spirit and while this spirit may get clouded by life experiences, it is a pathway forward to providing meaningful EE to the people whom we serve. This new eePRO group, Spirituality & EE, will allow us to explore different pathways and how they inform our work.
