|State Environmental Literacy Plans – 2013 Status Report|
|Post Date:||September 11, 2019|
The State Environmental Literacy Plans 2013 Report details how states are progressing with their Environmental Literacy Plans (ELP).
Forty-eight states (including the District of Columbia) responded to a survey to let us know the progress of their state ELP. More than 70 percent reported that their Environmental Education Association is playing an active role in the plan's development and implementation.
State environmental literacy plans are comprehensive frameworks that support school systems in expanding and improving environmental education programs.
State environmental literacy plans:
One of the most exciting trends in environmental education is linking schools, communities, and businesses to create change; ELPs offer a great opportunity to strengthen these partnerships.
We know that states are engaging a number of partners in ELP development and that the local community plays an important role in ELP implementation. In many states, EE professionals already serve to connect schools and communities; ELPs may offer the glue to cement the relationships between schools and their surrounding communities. Understanding how to build fruitful partnerships between formal and nonformal education efforts is critical and already being highlighted through the development and implementation of ELPs.
