Global Environmental Education Partnership (GEEP)Organizations
In October 2017, the Global Environmental Education Partnership (GEEP) launched a Call to Action to gather feedback on priorities for the field of environmental education (EE) over the next decade and beyond. To spark discussion, the GEEP identified ten potential actions environmental educators, collectively, could take to advance our shared goals. These actions were developed by a working group of environmental education leaders from around the world, and mindful of the incredible body of work that has come before, starting with the Tbilisi Declaration of 1977, the Millennium Development Goals, the Decade for Education for Sustainability, the international adoption of a set of ambitious Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and others.
In early December, AASHE signed the GEEP pledge supporting universal environmental literacy. With the pledge, the group aims to realize the vision of a world in which:
- Every nation has an environmentally informed, empowered, and active populace and workforce.
- The leadership of every government, business, NGO, and educational institution uses environmental education to achieve environmentally sustainable outcomes.
- Every educational institution incorporates environmental literacy into its mission, goals, and activities.
