Environmental education (EE) is splashing through creeks and climbing trees. It's also designing field investigations and taking action to protect the earth. Nature offers a lens for focusing on any subject — not just science — and a chance to connect student learning with the real world.
EE can take place in a classroom or outdoors, in school settings or informally, at any stage of life. It offers opportunities for students to be creative and gain academic skills and for communities to collaborate and solve problems.
EE is not just learning facts about the environment, nor is it solely focused on negative human impacts and the ecosystems or communities that are most affected; EE is a transformational process that informs, inspires, and empowers learners to make a difference in the world.
Exploring, investigating and making sense of natural phenomena to understand how the world works and ways people impact it.
Gathering information, solving bite-sized,
real-world problems, and becoming empowered to make a difference.
Realizing that environmental problems affect some people more directly than others, and working to make the world healthy for all.
Everyone needs opportunities to enjoy the outdoors, because when people connect with nature, we all benefit. When we spend time outside, our quality of life, health, and social well-being improve, and our communities become stronger and more sustainable.
