Accepting Proposals for 2022 Nature-Based Early Learning Conference

About the Conference

The Natural Start Alliance’s annual Nature-Based Early Learning Conference brings together hundreds of new and seasoned nature-based early childhood education professionals from the U.S. and abroad. Sessions explore how to plan, implement, and advocate for nature-based early learning programs; report on new and relevant research; share best practices in teacher education; explore education policy; and examine other topics that advance the field of nature-based early learning. In 2022, the conference will include both in-person and online options. Natural Start invites proposals for in-person and online sessions that advance innovation, quality, and equity in nature-based early childhood education.

The Natural Start Alliance requests proposals for sessions that:

  • Provide opportunities for hands-on learning and/or deep discussion
  • Are solution-oriented and include concrete takeaways
  • Share new research, advances in practice, innovative ideas, or relevant case studies
  • Promote equity and inclusion
  • Target emerging, intermediate, or experienced professionals
  • Reflect the practices described in the Nature-Based Preschool Professional Practice Guidebook
