In-Service: Professional Development & Leadership

Leadership training to support state/regional infrastructure, in-service training for formal educators, and outreach to diverse audiences

Project Learning Tree (PLT) is increasing the delivery of environmental education training and long-term support to educators across the U.S. Their work enables educators to teach effectively about environmental issues and to use EE as a tool for improving teaching and learning and achieving a healthy and sustainable environment. PLT’s trainings focus on three specific areas: leadership training to support state/regional infrastructure; in-service training for formal educators that builds on existing quality EE programs; and engagement with diverse audiences (both primary and secondary).
