But only in the USA. NEEF’s 12th annual National Environmental Education Week (EE Week) is taking place from April 17-23. It’s the USA’s largest celebration of EE, and it sets out to inspire environmental learning among school students, and beyond, with events and projects taking place across the country in classrooms, after-school clubs, parks, aquariums, museums, and more.
Each year, this celebration provides opportunities for formal and informal environmental educators nationwide to engage with the national EE community, learn from each other, celebrate achievements, and highlight the important benefits and rewards of environmental education.
This celebration is open to anyone who is offering or supporting environmental education: raising awareness, building knowledge and/or motivating others of any age to learn more about, and care for, the planet. Join the community and take part in the celebration, happening over the week of Earth Day, by registering your existing or new event, field trip, or project as an EE Week event here .
Although we think that every week should be EE Week, and we’re not really sure about the effectiveness of such weeks, we still pleased to see such enthusiasm across the water.
