In 2018 we launched the Environmental Literacy Community of Practice (ELCoP) to bring together people from across the state to help solve the challenges around improving environmental literacy for Arizonans. Current ELCoP members will be hosting two special conference sessions and we’d love for you to join the conversation.
EE and the Well-Rounded Student: Accessing Title IV-A Funds to Support Programs
The ELCoP PK-12 Working Group has been in conversation with the Arizona Department of Education to help demonstrate the value of EE programs for supporting well-rounded students, a requirement of the “Every Student Succeeds Act” (ESSA). Join us at the conference on Saturday at 10:45 to hear what we’ve done, learn how you can contribute to the conversation and understand how to access Title IV-A funds (support for well-rounded students) to support your programs with PK-12 classrooms.
Arizona Green Chamber Roundtable
The ELCoP Stakeholder Working Group has been exploring how to bring more voices to the conversation about environmental literacy. One particular voice that is often overlooked in education-focused conversations is that of green businesses. Partnerships for environmental literacy between green businesses and environmental educators have the potential to broaden reach through EE messaging to customers, and to strengthen educator capacity by applying business strategies to EE programs. Help us explore this potential with members of the Arizona Green Chamber in a roundtable and panel discussion during Saturday’s lunch.
