Building Our Capacity and Broadening Our Perspectives

 educators presenting to each other

We are the only statewide organization in Oregon whose role is to promote and influence environmental education on national and statewide levels each day. We are committed to creating a more coordinated network of environmental educators and community leaders across Oregon and beyond, working together to change policy and perception while promoting the value of being more connected to each other and where we live.

We have also made a commitment to better connect environmental educators and community leaders with a wider array of culturally and economically diverse communities and to inspire others in engaging and nurturing the next generation of environmentally literate citizens (see below for our inclusiveness statement). We initiate, lead and facilitate large-scale projects that advance innovation in environmental education and build our collective capacity to be effective environmental educators.
