As the professional association for environmental education, NAAEE advocates for funding and programs that support high quality EE programs at the federal and state level.

We work with affiliates, educators, and other partners to monitor opportunities to shape EE policy, develop strategies for advancing key initiatives, and build capacity within the EE community for advocacy.

Please join our efforts to secure the future of environmental education! Join the Advocacy Group on eePRO for regular updates on NAAEE’s policy initiatives, including details on our monthly grassroots EE advocacy conference calls.

New to Advocacy? Getting started is easier than you think.
  • The first step is to find out who represents you and the areas where your program has impact. Use the Senate and House websites to find your legislators. 
  • Once you know who represents you (and your program), learn more about their record of support for EE (note tabs on the bottom to switch from Senate to House).
  • Explore our current advocacy priorities for 2022 and use the instructions and resources provided to reach out to Congress today!
