In the paper, “Practitioners’ perspectives on the purpose of environmental education,” researchers reveal the field of environmental education is struggling to answer the question, “What’s it for?”

Is environmental education about advocacy?

Is it about behavior change?

It is about science education?

Is it about democratic decision-making?

Is it about critical thinking and social transformation?

What do YOU think is the purpose of environmental education?

Let’s talk.

This is the official launch of Breakthrough!, a monthly conversation about issues in our field and topics that matter to independent professionals like you and me. 

Registration will close on Friday, June 12 at 5:00 PM (Pacific). Registrants will receive material to help them prepare for the conversation. 

To ensure participants can engage comfortably and have an impactful conversation, maximum enrollment for this session is set at 12 participants.
