Guidelines for Community Engagement

Draft Framework

We need your help! NAAEE and EECapacity are in the process of developing another document for the Guidelines for Excellence series.  This set of guidelines will, when completed, focus on how environmental educators can work successfully in communities to protect the environment and promote community well-being and sustainability. These guidelines will also strive to help environmental educators, and others, create more inclusive working environments that support social equity, effective partnerships, and coalition building.

The first draft framework/outline for these guidelines is currently under review. As with all of the previous Guidelines for Excellence publications, these guidelines will be developed through an iterative public participation process. 

The second draft will be posted on the NAAEE website, and available for download, and new public comments soon. Check back often for dates!
