Wisdom House, Litchfield, Connecticut
NOW IS THE TIME:
Mindful Action Towards Progress
THE NEW ENGLAND ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION ALLIANCE CONFERENCE
REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN
Join us November 4-6 in Litchfield, Connecticut as we explore what drives individual and collective involvement in environmental education through natural science, psychology, art, advocacy, faith, mindfulness, research, spirituality and media.
This year we will coalesce the visions of environmental education with the ongoing need to provide leadership for communities that affect change in our treatment of resources, education and communication of environmental issues and impacts. What motivates us to move to action is a dynamic, multidisciplinary system. We are seeking proposals from the environmental community that communicate this motivation and connection through four strands:
Mindful Action - Pathways from knowledge to attitudes to behavior are complex and require re-solutions. What works to motivate people emotionally and scientifically to engage in mindful action and personal choices within communities and systems?
Environmental Education Impacts - What new or expanded programs and projects consider a multidisciplinary approach to increase awareness and understanding of climate impacts, phenology and resource use. How does this lead to mindful action that creates meaningful change in environmental outcomes?
Fueling the Passion - What connects us to our professional and personal missions? How can we best share ways to expand this connection with others and effectively craft our EE message through traditional and emerging methods of communication?
Generational Engagement - What projects and leadership development that focus on social learning and multigenerational approaches create and sustain commitment and more robust stewardship projects?
