Environmental Education Week 2016

National Environmental Education (EE) Week is the nation's largest celebration of environmental education. It is held each spring around Earth Day and inspires environmental learning and stewardship among K-12 students. This year, the theme is “Greening STEM: Rooted in Math”, and it will be April 17-23, 2016 (Earth Day is April 22).

Since its inception in 2005, EE Week has reached hundreds of thousands of students and educators across the United States with non-biased, high-quality, environmental education materials grounded in accurate, timely, scientific information and tied to local, state and national learning standards. 

EE Week works to celebrate all of the educators who are making a difference in the world of environmental education and STEM learning by providing them with the tools and resources they need to continue inspiring the next generation of lifelong environmental learners. NEEF’s 12th annual National Environmental Education Week (EE Week), sponsored by Samsung, inspires environmental learning among K-12 students, and beyond, with EE events and projects taking place across the country in classrooms, after-school clubs, parks, aquariums, museums, and more.
