Environmental Education of New Mexico (EENM) is committed to providing authentically inclusive events to allow for dialogue, relationship building, and the representation of diversity of perspective and thought. We utilize a Radical Inclusion approach and our gatherings are open to educators, teachers, youth, youth program providers, and interested community members representing interconnected interests like outdoor recreation, education, conservation, and environmental justice. EENM values the abundance of valuable experience, expertise, knowledge, and wisdom of New Mexicans and endeavors to center this in all of our events.
Our events are currently held virtually (via Zoom) and are hands-on, experiential sessions, where participants are actively engaged in conversations and break-out sessions. We will not be recording these sessions for later viewing.
