 Workshop Participants’ Interests and Perspectives

  • State of federal issue, potential for conservation career awareness program for high-schoolers, similar.
  • I would like to see a project that fosters and supports collaboration, connects national, state and local environmental literacy/education efforts, and seeks to better understand best-practices. It is also always useful to learn more about others' challenges and successes.
  • Evaluation and metrics to demonstrate success of the effort.
  • How outreach from environmental research and monitoring programs can tap into this network to construct and disseminate information
  • Green Schools Movement
  • The intersection between environmental science and service learning.
  • Framework for Assessing Environmental Literacy
  • Interested in latest strategies for environmental and ecological education
  • health impacts of climate change how adaptation efforts can reduce impacts of climate change on human health
  • Purpose of environmental literacy statements
  • I am curious about the goal of "Meet colleagues interested in advancing environmental literacy in the DC area through an intentional coordinated process"
  • Can provide an overview of the Healthy School's Act 2010/2011 and the mandate given to DDOE to develop, with the help of a number of DC Govt agencies and DCEEC, an ELP for the District. We can discuss all the work that has been done for the past couple of years, the ELP-working group and the three task force Standards/PD, Graduation and implementation task force.
  • Possible roles for national service members/non-profit organizations?
  • I would like to hear more discussion regarding linking the Environmental Literacy movement with the STEM education movement which currently benefits from strong support from the Administration.
  • What are effective strategies for having an impact nationally? How can we best support a national network of teachers who are employing new strategies in environmental education?
  • Listen to the ideas/needs of various sectors, extending ideas about a network/database. (b) Hear about current issues and ideas on environmental literacy, particularly where technology might come into play. (c) Discuss non-NSF-dependent funding sources, both as a backup if the grant is rejected, and as part o the sustainability plan for the grant.
