The Mississippi Environmental Education Alliance (MEEA), in partnership with the Southeastern Environmental Education Alliance, announces the launch of Phase 2 of its landscape analysis of environmental education efforts in eight southeastern states and is seeking feedback from teachers and administrators. Please submit responses to a survey by Oct. 5. Click here to access the survey.
The Phase 2 survey, which should take less than 20 minutes to complete, will allow MEEA to assess the scope, strategies, and resources being used in schools across the southeast to build environmental literacy in students. It will help determine gaps and barriers to EE implementation in schools, and it will enable MEEA to make recommendations that can help infuse EE into formal education settings.
Furthermore, the project can benefit educators and schools by helping to build partnerships between individual formal and nonformal educators at the community level to support ongoing active and social learning, networking, and idea exchange. It can also bolster collective impact at the state-level while helping school districts advance the environmental literacy of students.
To thank educators for completing the survey, everyone will be entered into a drawing for one of 120 $25 gift cards to the Outdoor Learning Store upon submitting the survey.
