EE Week 2020: April 20-24, 2020

National Environmental Education Week

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, NEEF is committed to following "social distancing" guidelines to slow the spread of this dangerous virus. With this in mind, we are working to release our updated EE Week resources early, as well as sharing other free online material from our partners, so that parents and educators will have immediate access to these environmental education tools. We hope you will consider them an informative, entertaining, and inspiring resource during this difficult time.
Please see our EE Week 2020 Activities below, Environmental Education at Home Resources and the Environmental Educator Resources page for more information.

National Environmental Education Week (EE Week), hosted by NEEF, is the nation's largest celebration of environmental education. This year, EE Week will take place from April 20-24, 2020.

To celebrate EE Week 2020, we invite you to visit the Greening STEM Hub, which provides educators with the information and resources they need to deliver high-quality STEM education by tackling real-world challenges and engaging students with the natural environment.

Plus, if you sign up using the form on this page, you will receive special benefits such as emails with discounts from our partners, exclusive interviews with educators, early access to Greening STEM infographics and activities, and much more!

For more information about EE Week, including the benefits of environmental education and available toolkits for educators, see the "Resources & Information" section below.
