2016 EEA Annual Conference

Call for proposals is now open!

The EEA Conference Committee would like to invite you to submit a session proposal for the 2016 Annual Conference, taking place at the Gwinnett Environmental & Heritage Center in Buford, Georgia on March 4-5, 2016. This beautiful LEED Gold certified facility features hands-on science, cultural and natural history exhibits, nature trails and outdoor classrooms.

Our conference theme is
Growing Green with the Next Generation. 

This year's conference will explore tools and techniques for building and sustaining environmental education programs that are impactful, innovative and relevant. We ask that presentation proposals be submitted under one of four thematic strands that characterize this year’s conference. Each strand explores a different aspect of the work we do to advance environmental education.

Supporting Our Programs
Fundraising, grant writing, budgeting, program evaluation, staff and volunteer management, working with boards, collaboration and partnerships, coalition building

Extending Our Reach: Distance learning, training other educators, developing curriculum/toolkits, reaching out to underserved audiences, creating new learning spaces, bringing the outdoors in

Keeping Current, Looking Ahead: Next Generation Science Standards, emerging issues, integrating technology, cultivating future environmental leaders

Spotlighting Our Success: Exemplary programs, EE best practices, model partnerships, innovative EE methods & tools

We welcome and encourage you to present a session and share your expertise and experiences with Georgia's environmental educators. Proposals must be submitted for consideration by November 25, 2015.
