We will share information on how you can join the e-conference soon.
The focus will be on how environmental education advocates (from formal and non-formal educators to scientists, natural resources experts and more) inspire change. Conference strands will aligned with the Oregon Environmental Literacy Plan (OELP) with an emphasis placed on DEI (diversity, equity and inclusion); in particular, thinking about how can EE empower diverse perspectives?

- Interconnectedness of People and the Environment – Understand the physical and biological world, and our interdependent relationship with it
