Guidelines for Excellence Join the conversation in the eePRO Guidelines for Excellence group.

The National Project for Excellence in Environmental Education has received funding from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency through the Environmental Education and Training Partnership (EETAP) and EECapacity, plus the U.S. Forest Service, the National Environmental Education and Training Foundation, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, University of Oregon, Northern Illinois University, and World Wildlife Fund.

For more information, please contact Bora Simmons.

The National Project for Excellence in Environmental Education, initiated by NAAEE in 1994, has developed a series of guidelines that set the standards for high-quality environmental education. Each of these publications was developed by a diverse team of professionals, and each has gone through a substantive review by thousands of professionals prior to its publication.

Through the National Project for Excellence in Environmental Education, NAAEE is taking the lead in establishing guidelines for the development of balanced, scientifically accurate, and comprehensive environmental education programs and materials. Quality environmental education programs help develop an environmentally literate citizenry that can compete in our global economy; has the skills, knowledge, and inclinations to make well-informed choices; and exercises the rights and responsibilities of members of a community.

The latest versions of printed materials in the Guidelines for Excellence series are available as free downloadable PDFs or you may purchase bound copies.

Learn how to get started on creating professional development workshops with these resources focused on each of the five Guidelines for Excellence publications.

The Guidelines Trainers' Bureau consists of environmental educators who are prepared to give presentations to a variety of audiences on the Guidelines and how they can be used. Training materials are available.

How can your organization promote quality environmental education? Adopt the Guidelines! Learn how to apply the Guidelines to your work, improve the quality of environmental education practice, and build credibility for the field.

Get aquainted with each of the Guidelines for Excellence publications through this collection of webinar recordings with accompanying PowerPoint presentations.
