Environmental Education Guidelines for Community Engagement (or “Community Engagement Guidelines” for short) is being written for environmental educators working in all communities—from sparsely populated rural communities to more densely populated urban areas.
It includes ideas for how to get to “know” a community, and how to keep your focus on environmental quality, but also link your work to community wellbeing and issues that your partners care deeply about. It includes ideas about how to work better together, and how to measure your impact.
Environmental Education Guidelines for Community Engagement points out five key characteristics of environmental education in communities. For each characteristic, guidelines are listed for program developers and educators to consider. When fully developed, the guidelines will include an introduction, a set of key characteristics and guidelines, examples/case studies, references, and a glossary of terms.
We are also developing an associated Toolkit which includes detailed explanations and resources related to various topics of importance to environmental education and community engagement.
We hope to see you on May 9, 2017 as we explore opportunities to better engage with our communities in the Land of Enchantment!
