NAAEE is in the early stages of developing a set of guidelines focusing on climate change education and climate justice as part of the Guidelines for Excellence series. As with all of the others sets of guidelines, these will be developed using a public participatory process involving opportunities to review and provide input. If you would like to learn about updates in our process and provide input into drafts, please complete the following Google form: https://forms.gle/HpZjxepxAgN3Y2LG6

Culturally responsive environmental education (CREE) was created to enable students to interact with scientists and participate in hands-on science experiments without the stress of hiding their identity. This survey was developed as part of an intern project and master’s thesis seeking to examine ways to improve CREE training in environmental education staff. The purpose of your participation in this survey is to help us at Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC) understand the current status of CREE in environmental education, what is needed to improve training strategies, and if a base guideline would help provide better training.
