What makes you a leader? And how are you harnessing the power of education to shape a sustainable and equitable world? We want to know!
Each year NAAEE opens the search to find 30 game-changing leaders under 30 years of age who are using environmental education to build a sustainable future for all. The EE 30 Under 30 Class of 2020 will join a growing alumni network of inspiring environmental education leaders and receive ongoing opportunities to network, grow professionally, and promote their work. And for the first time this year, all winners will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to the 2020 NAAEE Annual International Conference in Tucson, Arizona, from October 14-17, 2020. We know that leadership takes many different forms, and we strive to recognize that diversity in leadership around the globe.
