The Center for Diversity & the Environment, through ee360, is offering an Environment 2042 Leadership Intensive (E42LI) training for up to 30 people. The purpose of the E42LI is, through transformative experiences, to create a cadre of environmental education change agents that will build a more equitable, diverse and inclusive environmental movement.

The E42LI provides an opportunity to convene a diverse cadre of professionals who want to deepen their awareness, analysis and action as part of a broader movement to increase equity, diversity and inclusion in all aspects of environmental education (broadly defined to include culturally specific educators; folks working on environmental justice; environmental educators; and others).

Environment 2042 Leadership Intensive is a training that ushers participants through a deeply impactful and transformative learning process. The program includes decolonizing work, racial equity training, relationship & community building, and skill building to develop action-based solutions at the movement- wide, organizational, interpersonal, and individual levels. This program emphasizes deep personal investigation, coalition and community building, creative problem solving, and other tools to support leaders working to strengthen their organizations by exploring the implications of our changing demographics, diving deep into racial equity, and building capacity for working together toward shared goals for a more livable environment and just society.

E42LI provides an intersection of diversity training and leadership development, which in turn builds capacity in diversity change work. These programs are not just professional journeys, but also personal ones. Graduates act as a diaspora of diversity leaders who are ambassadors of a new paradigm. Every change agent operates in a sphere of influence, and the ripple effects have an exponential impact on the environmental movement as a whole.

Selecting a balanced cohort is a critical and unique element of the E42LI program. Participants for the ee360 2021 E42LI will be chosen from applicants who demonstrate a solid grounding and commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion.
