You are committed and so are we. You’ll get a full year of unlimited support from the Earth Force team. Questions? We’re here and ready to help.
Who should attend?
Are you part of the team at an environmental education organization? We’d love to have you! This year is invite-only, but send Alyssa an email if you want the details.
Registrants for the 2021 Congress should consist of one member of an environmental organization and one local educational representative. Preference given to BIPOC leaders/teams.
Is funding really available?
Yes! This work – changing how we teach this field – takes time, money, and support. We’ll help you with all three. Stipends are available for the integration of Environmental Action Civics into your programming after attending.
Is this another boring conference?
Little known fact: we’re allergic to boring professional development here at Earth Force. Somehow we’ve cracked the code into hosting an invigorating, funny, and actually useful event.
Can I sponsor the event?
Is the sky blue? Sure! We always welcome like-minded partners. Contact us for sponsorship packages. And speaking of sponsors, a huge thanks to our variety of funders including the U.S. EPA, the Bezos Family Foundation, and Chipotle.
