Upcoming Sessions

Introductory Earth Education Workshop
Earth Education is the process of helping people live more harmoniously and joyously with the natural world. Our programs motivate learners in understanding basic ecological processes, developing positive feelings about the natural world, and using their new understandings and feelings to begin making changes in their own environmental habits. If you recognize that we need a more structured educational response to our environmental problems, believe in providing direct contact with the natural world through adventuresome learning experiences, and want to assist people in developing a deeper personal relationship with their home planet, then this workshop was designed with you in mind.

In an introductory earth education workshop you will receive:
    + an overview of the history and methodology of earth education
    + an explanation of how environmental education went “astray”
    + exposure to dynamic techniques which captivate learners
    + an introduction to concept-building and -structuring
    + a step-by-step description of a model earth education program
    + participation in both the understanding and feeling components of earth education

For over 40 years this workshop has received outstanding reviews from participants in countries around the world. If you have not experienced this introduction to the earth education alternative to agency- and industry-sponsored supplemental environmental education, then you owe it to yourself to do so. Even more important, the earth needs you to do so on behalf of all its passengers.
