For more than three decades, ANJEE has organized one of the leading annual conferences for environmental education professionals in New Jersey, designed to promote innovation, networking, learning, and dissemination of best practices.
Our Annual Conference will focus on the power of education to create positive change for the future. EE is a force for building a more civically engaged citizenry. It’s a force for creating a more diverse and inclusive movement. It’s a force for linking research and practice, and for demonstrating the impact of interdisciplinary education. It’s a force for optimizing human potential and delivering excellent educational opportunities for all. Join us as we share ideas and explore ways to create a more sustainable future through the great power of environmental education.
During the conference, we will share ideas and innovation about how we can imagine a better future and create a path forward for the field in the coming decade and beyond.
Our Friday conference will include hour long workshops in the following strands:
- Building Leadership for Environmental Literacy
- Connecting with Nature
- Conservation and Environmental Education
- Educating for Sustainable Communities
- Green Schools and Career-Connected Learning
- Linking Research and Practice to Increase Impact
