Concerned about the consequences that climate change is having and will continue to have on our world, we decided to launch the #TechForClimate campaign, aimed at equipping climate-related nonprofits with the technology tools they need to amplify their impact. We believe that Nonprofits have a key role to play in climate action and that they could scale up their activities with the proper technological support.

Culturally responsive environmental education (CREE) was created to enable students to interact with scientists and participate in hands-on science experiments without the stress of hiding their identity. This survey was developed as part of an intern project and master’s thesis seeking to examine ways to improve CREE training in environmental education staff. The purpose of your participation in this survey is to help us at Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC) understand the current status of CREE in environmental education, what is needed to improve training strategies, and if a base guideline would help provide better training.
