Who should attend?
Are you part of the team at an environmental education organization? This is for you.
What's the structure?
The Workshop is virtual, with a combination of synchronous and asynchronous learning and lots of discussion. We've been working virtually since 2010 - and we've developed a sense of how to build community even through screens! One participant said "Earth Force staff showed off some stellar virtual facilitation techniques that as a fellow facilitator I will definitely be putting into action!"
Is funding available?
Yes! This work - changing how we teach this field - takes time, money, and support. We'll help you with all three. The Workshop is $250 to attend but the fee is waived thanks to a generous grant from ee360+ and the Bezos Family Foundation. And, $500 training stipends may be available to those who complete an action plan.
Is this another boring conference?
Little known fact: we're allergic to boring professional development here at Earth Force. We think we've cracked the code into hosting a collaborative, invigorating, and actually useful virtual event. As one participant put it, "This workshop was well organized and informative. I was given so many ideas, information, and helpful tips that I cannot wait to implement into my curriculum."
