We are so excited to announce the launch of a new research library: eeRESEARCH. This database is a partnership between the North American Association of Environmental Education (NAAEE) and the Children & Nature Network (C&NN), with support from the Pisces Foundation. With more than 1,000 peer-reviewed articles, summaries, and syntheses, eeRESEARCH represents one of the largest single collections of peer-reviewed literature focused on environmental education and connecting people to nature in the world (at least we think it’s one of the largest!).
Free resource for schools! The “Living Schoolyard Month Activity Guide” from Green Schoolyards America includes more than 130 hands-on activities--written by organizations across the US--connecting PreK-12 students to their schoolyard environment.
Whether you’re a program developer, evaluator, researcher, or funder, eeRESEARCH can help you find resources to support your work and improve practice! Browse more than 1,000 research summaries and syntheses, or use a variety of tools to narrow your search to the topics, authors, or focus areas that interest you.
The Children & Nature Network (C&NN) is seeking an experienced professional to join a dynamic team to support its Cities Connecting Children to Nature (CCCN) initiative. This national initiative is a partnership with the National League of Cities Institute for Youth, Education, and Families (YEF Institute) where the two partner organizations engage city leaders in planning and implementing equitable and abundant connection to nature for children. The Director of Cities and Nature will work closely with C&NN staff and YEF Institute partners to manage these aspects of the project and will be responsible for fueling a peer learning network among city government professionals and their community partners with the goal of helping them achieve more access and connection to nature for low-income children and families.
Researchers at Duke's Nicholas School of the Environment are helping NAAEE compile and create research summaries and syntheses for an online database to be housed on eePRO, an exciting project conducted jointly with the Children and Nature Network with funding from the Pisces Foundation. We want to hear from you about what would be most useful to you!
