NAAEE is a vibrant professional network working to advance environmental literacy and civic engagement throughout North America and beyond. Our members are professionals with environmental education responsibilities and interests across business, government, higher education, formal (K–12) education, nonformal education, early childhood education, science education and STEM, and other sectors of society. 

We are proud of our many accomplishments to elevate environmental education as a key strategy for creating lasting environmental change, none of which could have been achieved without the incredible support of our many valued partners and funders.

Anyone can join eePRO, the global community of environmental educators, where they can find and post jobs, events, and resources, connect with other EE professionals, and participate in professional development opportunities. NAAEE members get added benefits, like the ability to comment, discuss in Groups pages, connect with others who have similar interests in the field, and more.

NAAEE’s annual conferences have helped shape environmental education into the powerful force it is today, positively advancing civic engagement, environmental literacy, STEM learning, and the health of our communities and our planet.
