PA Environmental Educators Issue Call For Presentation Proposals For 2023 Annual Conference; PAEE & MWEE Award Nominations Now Open

PA Association of Environmental Educators has issued a call for presentation proposals for their 2023 Annual Conference to be held March 13-14 at Camp Hebron in Halifax, Dauphin County.

The theme of the Conference is-- Old Forests, New Lessons: Growing As Educators-- which celebrates what makes PAEE so special: our ability as passionate environmental educators to promote change through resiliency, diversity and engagement. 

Presentations should incorporate experiences and activities from community events, school programs, advocacy work, staff trainings, etc.

The tracks for the Conference are-- 

-- JEDIA (Justice, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Access) Initiatives: Environmental Education is for everyone! How are we reaching new and diverse audiences, increasing accessibility of programs and spaces, how do we authentically engage with our communities, and how do we embrace and grow diversity of all kinds within our organizations?

-- New and Innovative Programming: Education is so often tasked with solving big real-world problems. How is your organization and programming meeting NGSS and new state standards, experimenting with new modes of program delivery, or branching out into new themes (such as climate change, environmental justice, social-emotional learning, and more)?

-- Unique Partnerships and Networking: We don’t need to go it alone. Share how your organization is working with new partners, including those perhaps not traditionally included in the environmental education umbrella. What unique partnerships have been cultivated in your neck of the woods? Guests from partner organizations are welcome as co-presenters!
