Get to know: Colorado's NEW Environmental Education Plan
Environmental education is one of the best ways that Colorado schools can power up learning! Environmental and outdoor learning establishes connections that enable knowledge and skills to easily flow from the classroom into new contexts, powering further exploration. Some students across the state benefit from lots of energizing environmental and outdoor learning opportunities, while others have very little to plug into. A patchy and unreliable grid means our environmental education system isn’t as strong as it could be. By implementing the statewide Colorado Environmental Education (EE) Plan, we can rewire our EE system to eliminate dead zones and boost learning outcomes for everyone.
Join us to explore the Colorado Environmental Education Plan, first adopted by the Colorado State Board of Education in 2012 and newly revised in 2022! We will
- Exlore opportunities for you to engage in implementation of the plan,
- Get a toolkit to help you share the plan with the teachers and communities you work with, and
- Help launch Outside for 5, a new national campaign to promote outdoor learning!
