Environmental Education: School-Community Engagement
Communities are an important part of environmental education, but their potential is underused. Through this panel, several experts from the United States and other countries will discuss how to strengthen community engagement in school-based environmental education. This discussion will allow community engagement experts to learn from each other, and share their frameworks with any environmental educators, teachers, and community leaders.
