The MAEOE Annual Conference is the largest statewide environmental education conference in the nation and the only conference of its kind in the State of Maryland. The conference brings together 600+ formal and non-formal educators for four days of learning, discussion, and collaboration, networking, exhibits, and sharing resources from the classroom, the school grounds, and the community.

The MAEOE 2021 Conference begins on February 3. We are very excited about the theme: Climate, Nature, People, and Education; It’s all connected!

Dates: February 3 - 7, 2021

Location: VIRTUAL - ACCELEVENT, an interactive platform that ensures you will have a great experience.

Conference Highlights:

The Drawdown Project: Wednesday, Feb 3, 6:30 – 8:30 ET

The genesis of Project Drawdown was curiosity and hope, not fear and failure. Since 2014, Project Drawdown has conducted an ongoing review and analysis of climate solutions--the practices and technologies that can stem and begin to reduce the excess of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere--to provide the world with a current and robust resource. These solutions have influenced university curricula, city climate plans, commitments by businesses, community action, philanthropic strategy, and more. How might you integrate more or different climate solutions into your education work?

GLOBE: a day of workshops and GLOBE Panel: Feb 4, 12:30 – 1:30 ET

An overview of the GLOBE Program and the GLOBE Observer. Participants will learn how to register, how to become trained, how to navigate in the GLOBE and GLOBE Observer online workspace, and how to do the atmosphere protocols and become trained in that sphere.
