National Project for Excellence in EE’s Director Bora Simmons, and NAAEE Guidelines Writing Team Leader Michele Archie provide a personal introduction to NAAEE’s just-published Community Engagement Guidelines in the May edition of our monthly webinar series.
Community Engagement: Guidelines for Excellence describes five key characteristics of effective community engagement. Case studies, drawn from the field of environmental education, are also included to illustrate how key ideas can be implemented.
NAAEE Accreditation formally recognizes high quality college and university programs that consistently prepare well–qualified environmental educators who possess the understanding, skills, and dispositions associated with environmental literacy, as well as the ability to apply them in their educational practices.
