How effective is planting trees at accomplishing climate change goals, wildlife habitat restoration, alleviation of poverty, community health enhancement, and how strong is the evidence for this effectiveness? Explore the detailed findings in an interactive infographic.
Ruth Plenty Sweetgrass-She Kills, PhD and Jennifer Harrington, MS, two Native American women in STEM fields, share their experiences and a few components in the complex and multi-layered process of creating more inclusive spaces in STEM for Native Americans.
To continue innovating and increasing representation and transparency, in fall 2020, an NAAEE Affiliate Network 2.0 working group was established and resourced with a facilitation team to conduct a collaborative three-month design sprint imagining 2021 and beyond. Out of this design sprint came new network goals for the NAAEE Affiliate Network, this report details the process for writing the goals, summarizes network feedback, and presents both the new goals and next steps for the Affiliate Network.
We can't wait to address climate change, writes Savannah Donovan from Anita Purves Nature Center. In her article, "The Time to Act Is Now," Donovan shares how the center's Park District has developed a plan on climate action and built networks to achieve that plan.
In Christchurch, New Zealand, the city implemented a recycling scheme modeled on rewards. The plan involves placing a large gold star on the curbside wheelie bins of successful recyclers, and removes the bins of those who repeatedly fail to recycle properly. The percentage of recycling trucks able to head to the sorters is now nearing 80%.
This article disseminates the partial results of doctoral research where the curricular analysis of the official Program of Sciences of Basic Education in Costa Rica was carried out. The analysis established categories of analysis to determine the link between climate change issues and risk management, mainly hydro-climatic risks, for which it was supported theoretically by the NAAEE environmental literacy framework.
To continue innovating and increasing representation and transparency, in fall 2020, an NAAEE Affiliate Network 2.0 working group was established and resourced with a facilitation team to conduct a collaborative three-month design sprint imagining 2021, and beyond the documents below are the deliverables and reports from this work.
