Shaping a new generation of decision makers

"How can we, as environmental educators, best prepare future decision-makers to address the environmental challenges ahead of them? Drawing upon the most current research as well as the experience of environmental education professionals throughout Florida, our conference this year will focus on innovative ideas and strategies for supporting the development of environmental literacy in our communities on all levels. From supporting and promoting early nature-based learning to developing intergenerational EE programs that help to support inclusive communities, we will be exploring the various ways we can support upcoming generations.

This conference is ideal for classroom teachers, nature center, refuge, and park employees, environmental agency personnel, post-secondary students and faculty, and others interested in environmental education."
