Environmental Education Conferences in the New England States
Looking to the Past to Inform Our Future
March 8, 2017
College of the Holy Cross
As MEES celebrates its 40th anniversary, we look back at how the field of Environmental Education has transformed over the past century. Through the workshops at this year’s conference we hope to take a look back at the roots of the EE movement and how they have shaped the way our branches are reaching and stretching toward the future.
Environmental education is currently facing the real challenges of connecting the citizens of our globe to the natural world around them and communicating the importance of stewardship and action for a healthier Commonwealth, and a healthier Mother Earth.
