EENC wants to change the world by:

  • Providing professional development and networking for educators
  • Diversifying the field of environmental education
  • Bringing together like-minded organizations to increase capacity
  • Promoting excellence in environmental education

Why should you help us?

Because everyone benefits from environmental education. As a learner, teacher, parent, or community member, you can play a critical role in helping people access the intellectual, personal, and social benefits of environmental education.  

From our Supporters and Members: 

  • “EENC is bringing together educators and communities and truly transforming both formal and non-formal education across the state of North Carolina every day.”

  • “As a classroom teacher, it is connections to experts in environmental curriculum and content that really make a difference in my work. This year, after about 10 years of membership, I feel like I have finally turned a corner in the of implementing outdoor education curriculum and the 5th grade standards and NGSS.”

  • “The EENC conference is the best professional development I get all year. I have really improved my practice as a result of the many ideas I come back with every year!”

As a society, we are facing huge environmental, social, and economic issues.  The author Richard Louv spoke at our conference in 2016 and summed it up with a JAWS reference: We’re gonna need a bigger boat.  Will you be a part of EENC’s bigger boat?

Your gift of any size brings us another step closer to achieving our vision of an environmentally literate community.
