Guidelines for Excellence: Community Engagement
Environmental educators' best practices in community engagement
Green schoolyards can set the perfect stage for a space and programming that welcomes and reflects the community. Environmental education is about creating healthier communities for all—with ecological integrity, shared prosperity and social equity as long-term goals. Environmental educators work in a constantly shifting landscape, from diversifying demographics that present new opportunities and challenges, to increasing environmental and social issues facing every community. These Guidelines, created through a public review process, marry the field’s professional standards with environmental educators’ lessons learned, including case studies and a 25-item toolkit.
