Environmental Literacy Working Group

Who We Are

Led by the Arizona Association for Environmental Education, the Arizona Environmental Literacy Plan Working Group represents a diverse group of stakeholders interested in formalizing environmental education in Arizona. We are looking to expand our stakeholders to reach all corners and sectors of the state. 

Our Mission

To develop a framework for environmental literacy that supports a vibrant and sustainable future for Arizona through well-informed, engaged citizens.

Interested in Joining the effort

Voices from across the state of Arizona will come together to discuss how to develop a framework for environmental literacy that supports a vibrant and sustainable future for Arizona through well-informed, engaged citizens.

Hear from various stakeholder perspectives on the value of an environmental literacy, see examples of environmental literacy programs in action and share your thoughts on what should be included in an environmental literacy framework for Arizona.
