The Better Together Summit

  • Collaborating for a Resilient World
  • Strengthening our Collective Impact

Together we will inform, inspire and foster innovative collaborations among organizations and leaders from many different sectors and endeavors. Do you work for environmental literacy? Science education? Land conservation? Community food security? Outdoor recreation? Environmental justice? Resilient communities? Do you seek to enhance the relationships among people, nature and communities? Our work may not look the same, but you know we are all inherently interconnected. Your participation will help making us better together.

Join the New England Environmental Education Alliance and the Maine Environmental Education Association at Pineland Farms, in New Gloucester, Maine.

Twenty miles north of Portland, Pineland Farms is a 5,000-acre working farm, business and learning campus, and an inspiring venue for outdoor education and recreation.

  • Come and strengthen our connections and find common ground
  • Learn powerful new strategies for impactful collaborations
  • Celebrate the sum of our parts
  • Foster innovative partnerships
  • Create robust pathways to enhance environmental literacy.

Small journals will be handed out for use the walk. In the spirit of being "better together" participants will be asked to record their observations and ideas in several guided journal practices as they walk the forest. Participants will be invited to share their responses and any ideas that were generated on the walk for other kinds of learning in the forest and other partnerships that might flourish there.
