Environmental Action Conference

July 29 July 31 EDT

When: July 29–31, 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily
Where: Stroud Water Research Center (map below)
Cost: $375, includes breakfast and lunch. Scholarships are available! If you are eligible we will be in touch after you register.

Join Earth Force to learn how to incorporate civic experiences into your education programming. This three-day workshop provides hands-on training in action civics and environmental learning. We will explore a variety of environmental topics and how they apply to participants’ communities. They then will take the knowledge they learned and train educators in their local communities with continued Earth Force support.

Participants will learn how to enhance their environmental education program by engaging students in local environmental policy initiatives and goals.

Participants can expect to:

  • gain skills in project-based learning
  • create a strong peer network
  • learn/hear from a variety of guest speakers
  • become fully trained in action civics
  • know where to find local environmental goals and initiatives
  • learn how to host Earth Force educator trainings

In the first year after training, participants are supported by small-group
virtual meetings to reinforce their training and to address challenges and
questions that arise. In subsequent years, Earth Force trainers are given
the opportunity to meet with peers through our online network of trainers,
and will have the opportunity to participate in twice-a-year refresher
webinars.
