EE 30 Under 30

Our 30 Under 30 2017 panelists and facilitator, Danni Washington

EE 30 Under 30 

Do you know any game changers who are under 30 years old, or are you one yourself? Since 2016, NAAEE's EE 30 Under 30 program has recognized 60 individuals from around the world who are making a difference through environmental education. This program is made possible thanks to incredible partnerships with the U.S. Forest ServiceU.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Global Environmental Education Partnership

In 2018, we are looking for 30 individuals who are taking on leadership positions to engage communities, build relationships, and use the power of education to create change. These individuals also recognize the importance of inclusion and equity in everything they do, and as a result, have attracted new people and ideas to our field.

This year’s application process is NOW CLOSED. Please check back in July, 2018 to find out who was selected for our 2018 cohort!

The application is now closed.

For inspiration, read more about our past awardees below.  Or check out our live panel discussion from this past October in Washington, DC, USA!
