Justice, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Accessibility
We are not experts in diversity, equity or inclusion, but we can all be allies. We are experts in showing how learning occurs through environmental education. We all can learn to provide support of people of color and LGTBQ individuals. We can learn to provide safe spaces for all to come to know nature. We are an EE Community that can be the change we want to see in the world!
The first EECO DEI Listening Session was September 29th. Click here to see a recording of the zoom call. We plan to have more discussions and zoom table talks to continue this dialogue of how we can make the field of Environmental and Outdoor Education a more inclusive and safe space for People of Color. We also want to encourage more students of color to feel comfortable going into green careers as well as supporting environmentalism. Stay tuned for more sessions!
