EE Research

NAAEE actively engages in and supports evidence-based research across the complex field of environmental education. Working with outstanding partners, NAAEE has led the way on several important initiatives that advance our understanding of how best to practice and communicate about EE.

eeRESEARCH provides free access to the combined research collections of both C&NN and NAAEE in one, user-friendly online portal. Browse articles, summaries, and syntheses, or refine your search to fit your interests.

NAAEE, Stanford University, and other respected partners are working to connect powerful anecdotes to empirical evidence about the many benefits of EE and initiate widespread communication about the value of EE.

With support from Underwriters Laboratories, NAAEE and NewKnowledge are exploring how to better integrate environmental education into STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).

eeLEARN a series of online learning modules exploring the foundations of environmental education. Stay tuned for a new module on research and evaluation coming soon!

Designed to help you be more strategic and efficient in designing programs and evaluations, MEERA builds on best practices to walk you through a step-by-step evaluation process that is both comprehensive and easy to understand.

The environmental education research bulletins synthesize and summarize recently reported research from journals focused on issues pertaining to environmental educators.

The Research & Evaluation group on eePRO is helping EE researchers connect and collaborate. Find and share resources and new opportunities, and dive into the latest in EE research on the discussion board!
