NAAEE works with countries around the globe to collaborate and share resources and best practices on a variety of environmental education topics—from climate change to national EE policy. We have worked with Australia, Canada, China, India, Japan, Taiwan, the United Arab Emirates, Mexico, and others to advance the goals of environmental education globally. By working together, we can leverage the unique strengths of each country and help each other address pressing environmental challenges through environmental education. To learn more about these partnerships and the various ways we collaborate to mobilize support, visit our Partners page.
