Environmental education is a learning process that increases people's knowledge and awareness about the environment and associated challenges, develops the necessary skills and expertise to address the challenges, and fosters attitudes, motivations, and commitments to make informed decisions and take responsible action.
EENC’s mission is to build connections, provide professional development, and promote excellence in environmental education.
We do this by promoting and facilitating professional development, fostering networking opportunities, and demonstrating high quality environmental education programs and materials. EENC strives to be a leader in the field of environmental education within North Carolina, the southeast, and the nation.
EENC’s vision is to inspire those we work with to create an environmentally literate citizenry.
Our organization is a 501(c)3 non-profit, governed by bylaws that are voted on by our membership. The organization is managed by an all volunteer board of directors that is elected annually by the members.
