The Coalition facilitates communication, cooperation, collaboration and coordination among the varied environmental education programs in the state. The mission of C2E2 is to prepare stewards of all ages with skills to evaluate issues; make informed choices; act responsibly; and take corrective steps to maintain a sustainable environment for present and future generations.

The Coalition is a nonprofit that serves the shared interests of public and private agencies and organizations, businesses, teachers and individuals distributing and using environmental education materials. The Coalition aligned under Gateway to Science in Bismarck in 1997 to secure 501(c)(3) nonprofit status, aligned with the RC&D Council in Valley City in 2006, and achieved their own nonprofit status in 2014 in Bismarck.


Participants share a common and compelling vision to "develop a public that is knowledgeable, committed and motivated to take a balanced, active approach for a sustainable environment."
