The Environmental Education and Training Partnership Cultural Diversity
Workshops were based on theoretical models and designed to increase individuals’
awareness, knowledge, and intentions toward increasing culturally sensitivity. This
study reports on the evaluation results from 191 participants. Their responses
indicate significant changes in individuals’ levels of awareness and understanding.
However, the strategies used for enhancing participants’ levels of understanding
do not translate to the organizational level where change is needed to make
environmental education relevant and effective when interacting with others
holding different worldviews. The authors describe potential barriers and strategies
for organizational change.
